Video Interview: Mia Wasikowska talks ‘The Double’

by Phil Wheat

Simon (Jesse Eisenberg) is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world.  He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams.  He feels powerless to change any of these things.  The arrival of a new co-worker, James (Jesse Eisenberg), serves to upset the balance.  James is both Simon’s exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and good with women.  To Simon’s horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.

In this interview, film correspondent James Kleinmann asks actress Mia Wasikowska (who plays Hannah in The Double) when she first became aware of director Richard Ayoade’s work.
