The Double

Buy Tickets

(2013) dir Richard Ayoade w/Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn [93 min; Digital]
Simon James (Eisenberg) is a timid office clerk working in an ominous government organization. Undermined and undervalued everywhere he turns, it seems that his directionless life couldn’t get any worse – until the arrival of James Simon (also Eisenberg), his new co-worker. James is both Simon’s exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and seductive. To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life. British director Richard Ayoade (The IT Crowd, Submarine) returns with this darkly comic adaptation of Dostoevsky’s novella, featuring a tour de force dual performance from Jesse Eisenberg.
