Dead Ringers

From Wiki; "Dead Ringers is a 1988 psychological drama film starring Jeremy Irons in a dual role as identical twin gynecologists. Director David Cronenberg co-wrote the screenplay with Norman Snider; their script was based on the novel Twins by Bari Wood and Jack Geasland. The film is very loosely based on the lives of Stewart and Cyril Marcus."
This movie has aged well over 24 years as much to do with the sets and direction as Jeremy Iron's portrayal of identical twins, both brilliant gynaecologists. From the opening scene the twins Bev and Ellie occupy a world of their own which they are able to maintain up to the point where a somewhat unethical aspect of their medical practice leaves them unable to continue working. A close relationship with a patient, Claire played by Genevieve Niveau sees Bev beginning to use drugs to smooth his difficulties with their relationship. With a bedside copy of 'The Physician's Desk Reference' Claire is a willing partner until her work takes her out of town and Bev succumbs to a depression that Ellie attempts to deal wit Then the fun really starts.
