In a gripping performance, Jeremy Irons plays identical twin gynaecologists whose carefully ordered world spirals out of control when the meeker twin falls in love with their newest patient.

In an extraordinary lead performance, Jeremy Irons plays identical twin gynecologists, Elliot and Beverly Mantle. Together they operate out of a clinic in Toronto where the charming and confident Elliot seduces patients into sexual relationships before passing them onto Beverly, the more reserved of the two.

When Beverly falls in love with their newest patient, actress Claire Niveau (Geneviève Bujold), their clinical arrangement is threatened, and their carefully ordered world spirals out of control. Signalling the start of Cronenberg’s ongoing collaboration with the extraordinary cinematographer Peter Suschitzky, the film centres on Irons’ gripping and quietly demented performance as the twisted brothers perverted by their dependency.
