About the Movie
Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simon’s exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As a pure head-trip visual and auditory experience it feels like one of the biggest discoveries, and biggest surprises, of 2014.
Fresh: This workplace-as-hellscape is not new territory, exactly - the story's based on Dostoevsky, plays like Kafka, and looks like an Orwellian nightmare. But who'd complain, since it lets Jesse Eisenberg offer what amounts to an acting master-class.
Fresh: "The Double" is a striking piece of work, but it's nostalgic for a kind of paranoia that may no longer exist. There are different things to frighten us now.
Rotten: Most of the time, "The Double" feels less like watching a book than reading a movie.
The Double is a really imaginative vision from a talented filmmaker, and it has terrific performances. It has a sci-fi feel, but is also very funny. Highly recommended!!
original, funny, and stylish
Fantastic performances and unique take, can't recommend highly enough.
This film is brilliantly funny, atmospheric and clever!! Loved it.
