Starting to shed his ‘Moss’ mantle and firmly establishing his director status is Richard Ayoade as his new film ‘The Double’ is released this month. Based on the novella by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, this comedy film stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James; a lost and lonely man nearly driven to madness after his life is overtaken by a more confident and assertive doppelganger.

‘The Double’ also stars Mia Wasikowska as Simon’s love interest; Sally Hawkins, Wallace Shawn and now Brighton local Noah Taylor. Ayoade’s previous work ‘Submarine’ was a big hit with its audiences so let’s hope ‘The Double’ follows in its footsteps.
