A woman moves from NYC to LA after a murder, in which she is implicated. She is followed by what is apparently her evil alter- ego. She moves into a room for rent by a writer, and he begins having an affair with her, but after some strange things happen, he's not so sure if the affair is with her or her doppelganger. Written by

During the opening credits, we see an aroused Drew Barrymore squirming around with an unidentified man. She appears to be enjoying a very pleasant sexual experience, but is later haunted by this memory. Next, Drew Barrymore visits an unidentified woman and stabs her after bleeding from the nose and showing webbed fingers. The story really gets started when Barrymore (as Holly Gooding) arrives in Los Angeles to answer a "roommate wanted" ad placed by cute young writer George Newbern (as Patrick Highsmith). He wears a hat to bed, but Mr. Newbern is not balding...
Also in town is a Barrymore twin she calls her "Doppelganger"...
Newbern first sees the second Barrymore at a café with ex-girlfriend Leslie Hope (as Elizabeth). Then, she disappears. Dennis Christopher has fun as a mad doctor with Hell to pay and Sally Kellerman is a reformed nun. Newbern doesn't know what to think, and neither will you. There is a lesson here - if a beautiful young woman arrives to be your roommate, there will be a catch. Cheers to Avi Nesher and the crew for finding and re-decorating what looks like my old Los Angeles apartment. The curtains, tea kettle and dish drainer went with the place. The TV never worked.
***** Doppelganger (4/24/93) Avi Nesher ~ Drew Barrymore, George Newbern, Leslie Hope, Dennis Christopher
