LIVING WITH YOURSELF- REVIEW
Starring Paul Rudd and PAUL RUDD, Living with Yourself is Netflix's original series that released on 18th October. How would you feel if you had to live with a better version of yourself? Don’t know the answer? Rudd is here to answer the question for you.
The character of Paul Rudd, Miles is struggling and is always unhappy with the things going in his life. He then goes for a spa treatment that detoxes its clients’ DNA in order to make them better. Desperately wanting to live his life with his full potential, Miles goes for the treatment and wakes up as a man filled with enthusiasm for his life. But, this Miles isn’t the original Miles. The original Miles wakes up in a forest and is obviously is not happy with the current scenario.
The eight-episode series constantly depicts the scenes with two different perspective-one that of original Miles and the other, obviously of the clone. Miles gets intimidated by his own better self and he now has to fight to be in his own life. He needs to fight for his wife, career and for his own identity that is taken over by his other identity.
The series presents to us a unique storyline where a person is threatened by himself only as this other person is slowly establishing his authority over everything that Miles owned and had. Now, Miles, seeing that this other self of his is much better than him, has to devise a plan to get a hold over his own life.
The Ant-Man star is exceptional playing both the characters and exploring both the sides of Miles’s personality. Aisling Bea as his wife, Kate also shines in her own way and the husband-wife chemistry is wonderful. The main focus of the writer-creator Timothy Greenberg is, how a person fights with all the worst parts of his nature to become a better version of himself and we are totally digging the concept.
Living with Yourself presents a unique storyline to the audience and to find out the feeling if you have to live with yourself, stream it now on Netflix!
