One our our favorite films out TIFF last month, and a bold sophomore feature effort from "Submarine" director Richard Ayoade, trying to describe "The Double" is a bit difficult. But if the idea of a steampunk, "Brazil"-esque black comedy based on the novella by Fyodor Dostoevsky sounds even remotely intriguing, than this film will more than deliver.

One our our favorite films out TIFF last month, and a bold sophomore feature effort from "Submarine" director Richard Ayoade, trying to describe "The Double" is a bit difficult. But if the idea of a steampunk, "Brazil"-esque black comedy based on the novella by Fyodor Dostoevsky sounds even remotely intriguing, than this film will more than deliver.

A couple of new character posters have dropped for the leads in the film, Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, giving their headshots a stylish treatment for an equally stylish film. "The Double" centers around the meek and awkward Simon James who finds his drab life upended which his doppelganger shows and starts taking over his job, going after his girl and doing all the things he's ever dreamed of. Featuring a large ensemble, and a couple of sly cameos, the film is a distinct pleasure, featuring bold visuals, bleak laughs and a terrific dual lead turn from Eisenberg. Visually, the picture gets some punch by production designer David Crank ("The Master") while the score by Andrew Hewitt is one of the best we've heard in a while.

No solid release date yet, but keep an eye out for "The Double" in 2014. Read our full review here. [Empire]
