Storyline

Adam Bell is a Toronto area History college professor. He is a rather somber man, largely because he is stuck in a routine, which includes a relationship with his live-in girlfriend, Mary. While watching a rental movie, he spots an actor in a bit part that looks like him. He becomes obsessed with finding out about this double of his. He learns that the actor's stage name is Daniel Saint Claire, whose legal name is Anthony Claire. Claire is a Toronto based actor with only a few on-screen credits, and is married to a woman named Helen who is currently several months pregnant. Adam then becomes obsessed with meeting Claire, who he learns upon first sighting that they look exactly the same, from the facial hair to a scar each has, but Claire who outwardly is more "put together" than Adam. Their lives become intertwined as Claire himself ends up becoming obsessed with Adam, but in a slightly different way. Written by Huggo

Surprising! And worth watch more than one time.
24 May 2020 | by medovcSee all my reviews

Jake Gyllenhaal the best actor for mystery movies, you watch it you think you understand what's going on but at the end at the last 5 seconds you say what the hell is just happened?! But if you look vey well at the first couple minutes of the movie you will understand that the end is connected with the beginning and it's very clear. This kind of movies let you bring all your brain inside the screen and let you watch the movie if you like or not. It's very well and Sarah gadon like everytime playing her part in the acting very professional. That movie should be watched more than onetime everytime you watch it you figure out something new...
