When Gina McVey (Headey) suffers brain damage in a car accident she starts imagining her family are not themselves, spiralling her further and further from reality.
Gina (Lena Headey) glimpses her doppelgänger on the street, which distracts her enough to cause a brilliantly staged car crash which gives her minor brain damage — triggering a rare condition whereby she falls under the delusion that her nearest and dearest aren’t themselves. The woman-who-haunted-herself premise escalates into an Invasion Of The Body Snatchers scenario as mirrorworld doubles ominously infiltrate a glass-and-steel London. Writer-director Sean Ellis is influenced by M. Night Shyamalan, and manages an approximation of both Shyamalan’s habitual look and whispery melodramatics; he even springs a genuinely affecting last-reel twist.
