Teaming up once more with his “Prisoners” director Denis Villeneuve, Jake Gyllenhaal takes on another riveting suspense thriller entitled “Enemy.” The film premiered alongside “Prisoners” at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and looks to be as enthralling, if more abstract, a collaboration.
The story follows Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal), whose sighting of a man who looks exactly like him prompts a series of bizarre twists and turns in which he attempts to discover who this hauntingly familiar figure really is. Gyllenhaal performs double-duty, playing both the character of Adam and the mysterious man he’s tracking down. Based on Jose Saramago’s novel of the same name, “Enemy” was written by Javier Gullon and also stars Melanie Laurent and Isabella Rossellini. The film opens in limited release on March 14th, but will first be available exclusively on DirecTV on Feb 6th. Check out the trailer below:
