Synopsis:
Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska star in writer/director Richard Ayoade's adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novella about a man who goes insane after the appearance of his doppelgänger. Quiet, unassuming office employee Simon (Eisenberg) goes unnoticed at work, is ridiculed by his own mother and lacks the confidence to attract the attention of his dream girl Hannah (Wasikowska). His new colleague James (Eisenberg) is Simon's double in appearance but is his exact opposite in terms of personality, being full of confidence and charisma. When James begins to take over his life, Simon's mental health becomes increasingly fragile. The cast also features Wallace Shawn, Noah Taylor, Sally Hawkins, Chris O'Dowd and Paddy Considine.
