About the Film:  Two sisters – twins…one is a murderess. But which one?

The film was groundbreaking for the way it seamlessly stitched together two Olivia de Havillands in the same frame in several shots, something fairly easy to do today but was very difficult in 1946.

About the Film: Many consider this film bewildering. Others find it a surreal masterpiece steeped in metaphors. The jury may be out but most agree – it is an utterly compelling watch that leaves you with more questions than answers. The plot centers around history teacher Jake Gyllenhaal as he seeks out his look-alike who he notices in a movie.


There will be a 10-minute break between the films
