Plot Summary 

Enemy tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal) who is nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend Mary (Mélanie 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 (Sarah Gadon) and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (the Academy Award nominated director of Incendies), and based on the novel The Double by Nobel Laureate author José Saramago, the film is a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller about duality and identity, where in the end only one man will survive. The film, which also stars Isabella Rossellini as Adam's mother, was produced by Niv Fichman and Miguel A. Faura, and adapted for the screen by Javier Gullón.
