"Enemy": Double Or Nothing

Sneak Peek footage and images from director Denis Villeneuve's 2013 'erotic thriller' "Enemy", starring Jake Gyllenhaal in a dual role, with Mélanie Laurent, Isabella Rossellini, Sarah Gadon, Stephen R. Hart and Jane Moffat, adapting author José Saramago's Nobel prize-winning 2002 novel "The Double" :

" history professor 'Adam Bell' (Gyllenhaal) is a detached, terminally unhappy guy living in a darkly lit Toronto apartment, drifting through life by day, with passionless sex with his girlfriend (Melanie Laurent) by night.

"One day during lunch, an intrusive colleague recommends that Bell rent the movie "Where There's a Will, There's a Way", described as a comedy with a happy ending. Adam picks up a DVD copy, pops it into his laptop one night after grading papers, and notices something odd: the anonymous background performer playing 'Bellhop #3' in the film, looks exactly like him.

"Gradually becoming obsessed with their similarities, Adam does some research and finds the actor named 'Daniel Saint Claire' (Gyllenhaal) appeared two other movies.

"Then he finds out where Daniel Saint Claire lives and shadows him, eventually crossing paths with Claire's pregnant wife (Gadon) and coming face to face with Anthony, who's also shaken up by the uncanny resemblances, down to their shared voices and body scars, and the fact the women in their lives look very much alike..."
