Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network) is a timid office clerk working in an ominous government organization. He is belittled by his boss (Wallace Shawn) and colleagues, scorned by his mother, and ignored by Hannah (Mia Wasikowska, Stoker, Alice in Wonderland), the lovely copy room girl he pines for. Undermined and undervalued everywhere he turns, it seems that his directionless life couldn't get any worse—until the arrival of James Simon, his new co-worker. James is both Simon's exact physical double and his opposite—confident, charismatic and seductive with women. To Simon's horror, James slowly starts taking over his life. British director Richard Ayoade(Submarine) returns with this darkly comic adaptation of Dostoevsky's novella, featuring a tour de force dual performance from Eisenberg, alongside a strong ensemble cast that also includes Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O'Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts and Paddy Considine.
