Magnolia Pictures has snatched itself the U.S. distribution rights to ’s The Double.
The psychological thriller debuted at the Toronto Film Festival 2013 to generally enthusiastic critical response. A tiny sample: Matt Goldberg, writing for Collider, described the film as "a dizzying, beguiling work of cinema."
The Double stars (The Social Network) as the wallflower-y Simon who gets overlooked at work and ignored by his dream girl (). When a co-worker, who is Simon’s exact doppelganger (also played by Eisenberg), arrives at his workplace his world is turned upside down.
