Jake Gyllenhaal and Denis Villeneuve made a formidable team for last year’s Prisoners, and now they’ve joined up again for the psychosexual thriller Enemy. Here are a NSFW teaser and a pair of featurettes to get you acquainted with the film.
We’re also throwing in several stills and the official trailer since we missed it when it was released a few weeks ago.
Enemy, which is now available exclusively on DirecTV, will be opening in Southern California theaters March 21st courtesy of A24 Films (see the locations below).
The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, and Isabella Rossellini. It’s directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Javier Gullón based on the novel The Double (O Homem Duplicado) by José Saramago.
Enemy tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who is nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend, Mary (Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony, an actor living with his pregnant wife, Helen (Gadon), and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle. The film is a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller about duality and identity, where in the end only one man will survive.
