Last years Prisoners was both a huge commercial and critical success. It’s no wonder that Gyllenhaal and director Denis Villeneuve are reteaming to work on another project.
This time the project is a thriller about a man who discovers he has an exact duplicate, who just so happens to be a movie star.
The trailer is atmospheric and genuinely conveys as deep sense of foreboding and dread. The film looks like an interesting follow up to Prisoners.
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.
