Closing out this year’s fest is “THE DOUBLE,” a stylish black comedy from Magnolia Pictures. “THE DOUBLE” stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, a timid man living an isolated existence in an indifferent world until his exact physical double and opposite personality arrives in the form of new co-worker, James Simon.  Directed by cult favorite Richard Ayoade of “Submarine” and television’s “The IT Crowd”, “THE DOUBLE” promises searing wit and seasoned character actors including Mia Wasikowska and Wallace Shawn.
