Our take

In this contemporary retelling of Dostoyevsky’s classic existential novella, writer-director Richard Ayoade (Submarine) riddles out his own uniquely-stylized interpretation of this dark tragicomedy of devious dopplengangers and psychosocial alienation. Starring Mia Wasikowska and Jesse Eisenberg.
