Britain | 2013 | Richard Ayoade
Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska star in the acclaimed new film by British comic actor and director Richard Ayoade, whose previous (and first) theatrical feature, Submarine, was one of the highlights of 2010. Based on a Dostoyevsky novella, The Double tells of a mousy office clerk, Simon James, who is startled to discover that his new co-worker, James Simon, looks exactly like him, but is as confident, charismatic, and popular as Simon is shy, timid, and lonely. "Richard Ayoade's breathtakingly realized oddity will appeal to fans of David Lynch and the comic surrealism of Terry Gilliam's Brazil.” -New York Post.
93 min. Blu-ray. Cleveland premiere.
