Three Faces of ‘Rupert’

Looking for a film about someone coping with three personalities? You’ll never confuse the new Rupert, Rupert & Rupert, a dramedy starring unheralded Sandy Batchelor, with 1957’s The Three Faces of Eve, a serious drama that earned Joanne Woodward an Oscar for Best Actress.

Batchelor plays…you guessed it…Rupert, all three of him.  Rupert’s a struggling London actor whose three identities battle for center stage after he lands a leading role in a West End play. He falls for the show’s makeup artist (Daisy Keeping) and seeks the help of a therapist (Adam Astill).  

You can stream the 99-minute Rupert, Rupert & Rupert from $3.99 at Amazon, iTunes or Vudu.

If you prefer to see multiple personality disorder played straight, you can stream the  91-minute The Three Faces of Eve from $2.99 at those same sites and others. Woodward plays Eve White, Eve Black and Jane (no last name). The film is based on a true story.
