Richard Ayoade on The Double: Video interview at Glasgow Film Festival
Richard Ayoade follows up Submarine with The Double, a nightmarish adaptation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novella of the same name. It stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, a low-level bureaucrat who's desperately in love with his coworker Hannah (Mia Wasikowska), but is so shy and unassuming ("a nothing-person") that he can barely bring himself to talk to her. Simon's life changes, however, when he meets his suave, mischievous doppelgänger James Simon (also played by Jesse Eisenberg).
We caught up with Ayoade at the Glasgow Film Festival ahead of the UK release of The Double on 4 April 2014.
