Synopsis
Richard Ayoade's stylized adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella THE DOUBLE stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, a meek office drone who bumbles his way through his day, forever pining for a pretty girl (Mia Wasikowska) who lives near him and working hard for a boss (Wallace Shawn) who doesn't see any of his accomplishments. One day Simon discovers that he has a new co-worker, James Simon (also Eisenberg), who looks just like him and possesses all of the confidence and charisma that Simon lacks. Simon befriends this new person, and soon the put-upon man is asserting himself. However, he begins to fear he's becoming just another pawn in James' relentless self-interests. THE DOUBLE screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Movie Critics
Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t has enough individuality, imagination and idiosyncratic invention to identify it as a true original."
David Hughes (28 Mar 2014, )
Film Comment
"The second feature directed by Richard Ayoade is a dark and surreal comedy-thriller that takes a dizzying jaunt through cinematic and literary allusion, parody and paranoia."
Film Comment Staff (7 May 2014, )
New York Times
"In THE DOUBLE, Richard Ayoade’s energetically stylized adaptation of a Dostoyevsky novella, Jesse Eisenberg plays Simon James, a man so unassuming that he barely exists."
A. O. Scott (9 May 2014, )
Roger Ebert
3 stars out of 4 -- "[P]aying homage to the likes of BRAZIL, Orson Welles' THE TRIAL and ERASERHEAD within its first five minutes, THE DOUBLE insists upon its bona fides with a will and makes you like it."
Glenn Kenny (9 May 2014, )
Total Film
3 stars out of 5 -- "[F]unny, strange and beautifully put together."
Matt Glasby (31 Mar 2014, )
Wall Street Journal
"Mr. Ayoade's new film, adapted from Dostoyevsky's novella THE DOUBLE is at least as startling as SUBMARINE in its visual design, eerie environments and unusual premise."
(8 May 2014, )
