A meek office worker has his world turned upside down in The Double
Richard Ayoade returns with his second feature film, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska.
24 March 2014
We’re very excited to be hosting an exclusive preview of The Double on 27 March, followed by a live by satellite Q&A with Richard Ayoade.
Jesse Eisenberg plays Simon James, a meek office worker with a crush on his colleague Hannah (Mia Wasikowska). His shyness has prevented him from ever speaking to Hannah until a new member of staff appears who looks startlingly like Simon. James Simon is the exact opposite of Simon James, he is brash, outspoken, confident and risk-taking.
The duplication goes completely unnoticed because Simon is such a nobody but James quickly befriends the boss, becomes the most popular person in the office and begins a relationship with Hannah behind SImon's back.
Whilst he is probably still best known for his roles in The IT Crowd, Nathan Barley and The Mighty Boosh, The Double confirms Richard Ayoade as one of the most exciting and forward thinking young directors working today.
Tickets for the Preview and Q&A of The Double are available now from the Box Office, online and by phone on 0871 902 5737. The film goes on general release from 4 April.
