Director: Richard Ayoade

From novella by: Fyodor Dostoevsky

Keywords: Drama

A timid government bureaucrat's life is upended by the arrival of a co-worker who happens to be both his body double and a social butterfly.

Simon is a quiet and introverted government employee, living a pitiful existence spurned by his love interest and scorned by his mother. From out of the blue one fateful day comes Simon's new co-worker, James, a charming young man who stands as both Simon's body double and an embodiment of all the desirable characteristics he does not possess, forcing him to scramble for answers and a way out of his personal hell after he begins to subsume his life.
