Richard Ayoade’s follow-up his appealingly quirky directing debut, 2010 coming-of-age comedy Submarine is a surreal updating of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Double
, which moves the setting from 19th-century Russia to modern-day America. The Social Network‘s Jesse Eisenberg stars as a downtrodden office clerk in a forbidding government organisation who finds his exact double turning up in his workplace. Mia Wasikowska co-stars as the co-worker on whom the tongue-tied hero has a crush.

The Double shows at the Odeon West End at 8.30pm tonight; and at the Vue Leicester Square at 12.45pm on Sunday 13th October and the Hackney Picturehouse at 6.15pm on Monday 14th October.
