The Double

Opens Friday, May 9, 2014 Synopsis: Richard Ayoade's stylized adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella The Double stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, a meek office drone who bumbles his way through his day, forever pining for a pretty girl (Mia Wasikowska) who lives near him and working hard for a boss (Wallace Shawn) who doesn't see any of his accomplishments. One day Simon discovers that he has a new co-worker, James Simon (also Eisenberg), who looks just like him and possesses all of the confidence and charisma that Simon lacks. Simon befriends this new person, and soon the put-upon man is asserting himself. However, he begins to fear he's becoming just another pawn in James' relentless self-interests. The Double screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

BICYCLING WITH MOLÍERE

Opens Wednesday, Apr 23, 2014 Synopsis: A popular French television actor makes the journey to L'Île de Ré on a mission to convince his old friend, a retired fellow actor, to appear in a stage version of Molière's The Misanthrope. Gauthier (Lambert Wilson) is a handsome actor who plays a beloved cosmetic surgeon on a prominent daytime soap opera, and Serge (Fabrice Luchini) is a once-proud theatre performer who's comparative lack of success has rendered him and bitter middle-aged man. Serge is living a life of peaceful solitude near France's Atlantic coast, when, one day, his old friend Gauthier turns up on his doorstep in a bid to summon him back to the boards. Once Serge learns that the play in question is Molière's The Misanthrope, set to be staged in Paris, his interest is peaked. Later, as the two bickering friends rehearse their lines during bicycle rides down bucolic roads, the appearance of an aspiring porn actress, an alluring Italian divorcée, and a prime piece of island real estate begin to complicate an already sensitive arrangement. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Fabrice Luchini, Lambert Wilson, Maya Sansa Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
