92 minutes/Opens on Thursday/2 stars

The story: After interior designer Nikki (Annette Bening) loses her husband Garrett in an accident, she runs into Tom (Ed Harris), a painter who looks exactly like Garrett. She is unable to control herself and engineers a meeting that soon blossoms into a relationship. Her neighbour Roger (Robin Williams) looks on with concern.

This must be the season for films about people with identity crises. Opening at the same time as the doppelganger thriller Enemy is this work, about a woman who falls in love with a man who is the spitting image of her dead husband.
