Blu-ray Release: The Double

September 23, 2014

The Double Blu-ray

Back on September 9th, D Films released The Double on Blu-ray.  Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg) is a hopelessly shy office worker, slaving away at his job and pining for the attention of cute coworker Hannah (Mia Wasikowska). But then the charismatic James Simon (Jesse Eisenberg) arrives at the office, an exact doppelgänger of Simon James who threatens to derail his entire existence.

Several months after first seeing it, The Double is a film that I still find myself thinking about, and one of the best of the year so far.  This is a film that quietly grows on you and is impossible to shake afterwards, a fascinating tragicomedy filled with perfectly mannered character quirks and dark subtext, as well as a mesmerizing double performance from Jesse Eisenberg.  You can read my full review right here.

The Blu-ray includes an interview with director Richard Ayoade as well as several featurettes.

The Double is 93 minutes and rated 14A.
