Meet Liam O’Leary: wealthy Dublin developer with a stylish wife, a Marxist son and newfound knowledge of a stunning family secret. Meet his doppelgänger: a mysterious stalker with revenge on his mind and the savvy to pull it off.

This darkly comic thriller about a comfortable man confronted quite literally with his own worst impulses strikes hard at the very notion of identity. Brendan Gleeson is all bluster and vulnerability in both roles; Ciarán Hinds pops up as a childhood friend-turned-priest, and Kim Cattrall is a quiet surprise as a woman who isn’t quite sure which husband she prefers. (9:25 p.m. Fri. plus 6:50 p.m. Sat., St. Anthony. 107 min.)
