Video: Richard Ayoade Talks ‘The Double’ at New Directors/New Films

Posted by Tiffany Vazquez on 5.7.2014

Richard Ayoade's The Double starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Chris O'Dowd, and Sally Hawkins opens in limited release on Friday. In their review, Film Comment says: "Like a lucid nightmare on the subway at odd hours, The Double leaves one feeling intellectually stimulated, creatively charged, and close to existential panic."

The film, based on a novella by Fyodor Dostoevsky, had its New York Premiere at New Directors/New Films back in March and Ayoade stopped by for a lively Q&A. If you missed it, here's video of Ayoade discussing the challenges of casting Eisenberg in two roles, the film's score, and even a bit about his role in the cult British sitcom The IT Crowd.
