Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal reteams with Prisoners director, Denis Villeneuve, in the sexy and mind-bending thriller Enemy. Based on Nobel Prize in Literature winner Jose Saramongo's novel The Double, the screenplay is written by Javier Gullón. It also stars Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon and Isabella Rossellini. Breathing new life into the doppelganger genre, it won the Grand Prize of European Fantasy Film in Silver at the Catalonian International Film Festival.

Adam Bell is a glum history professor who has grown tired of his ordinary life of grading papers and having perfunctory sex with his comely girlfriend. When he discovers a bit-part actor in a rented film looks exactly like him, he tracks him down and learns his physical doppelganger’s name is Anthony Claire. Leading a much more exciting life than Adam, he becomes obsessed with Anthony and stalks him. Eventually, the identical men meet and find out they are both born on the same month, day and year, and they are perfect copies of each other -- including the scarring and birth marks. However, their personalities are complete opposites; while Anthony is assertive and sexual, Adam is a reserved intellectual. Both horrified by the other’s existence, their lives are now bizarrely and irrevocably intertwined as they launch into a deadly game where only one man can survive and exist.

In addition to the feature film, the DVD and Blu-ray include a making-of featurette.
