Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska are the stars of The Double, a movie by the English director Richard Ayoade and inspired by Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel. What can happen if a better version (more charming and more successful) of yourself appears and starts shaking your monotonous life? This is the menace that Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg) has to face when James Simon (Jesse Eisenberg) shows up at his dystopian work place.
Interesting cinematography, amazing editing and marvellous soundtrack are the background for the astonishing performance of Jesse Eisenberg, who proves to be one of the best actors of these days. Presented at 2013 Toronto Film Festival, it’s a movie to watch, at least once in lifetime.
