Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg) is a white-collar drone stuck in a Kafkaesque world of perpetual humiliation. Enter James Simon (also Eisenberg): a Type-A doppelgänger who offers to woo Simon’s dream girl (Mia Wasikowska) for a price. As writer/director Richard Ayoade’s sophomore movie proves, however, appearances are never what they seem.
