Zoe Kazan Talks Twin Roles Of 'The Pretty One' & How 'In Your Eyes' Is "Like Joss Whedon Does Nicholas Sparks"

Classic titles from Brian De Palma, a pair of Bette Davis headliners, Olivia De Havilland, Viggo Mortensen, those Parent Trap films, are all examples of the same actor playing identical twins, many of them featuring narratives where a less successful twin wishes to usurp the identity of the most prized of the pair. Of course, this generally leads to a morbid atmosphere. If writer/director Jenee Lamarque brings anything new to this idea it’s that she turns this scenario into a romantic comedy, and with sometimes winning results. Of course, this tactic of re-tooling elements of film noir for modern romance isn’t quite revolutionary either (see 90’s films like While You Were Sleeping or Mrs. Winterbourne), and there »
