STUDIOCANAL have announced that Richard Ayoade’s The Double will be available on EST from 28th July, and on DVD and Blu-Ray from 4th August 2014. The Double is available to pre-order now.
Director Richard Ayoade’s (Submarine) latest feature is an idiosyncratic adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s celebrated novella. Simon (Jesse Eisenberg) 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, Hannah (Mia Wasikowska). 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.
DVD & Blu-Ray will feature deleted scenes and extended scenes as extras.
