Jonathan shares an apartment with his night-working brother John, with whom he communicates only via daily video messages. Okay, it’s no spoiler — indeed the film’s central theme — to tell you that they occupy the same body. Their regimen, set up by psychiatrist Patricia Clarkson, works fine until John breaks a cardinal rule and gets a girlfriend. This intelligent and absorbing little sci-fi tale, an intriguing take on the dual-personality concept, gives Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars, Baby Driver) the chance to demonstrate his acting chops by deftly juggling two roles without disguises or makeup tricks.
