The science fiction fable Jonathan, which marks director/co-writer Bill Oliver’s feature film directorial debut, explores identity and longing through the story of two brothers with a unique sibling bond – they live inside the same body.

Jonathan, portrayed by Ansel Elgort (The Fault in our Stars) is a young Manhattanite living a solitary life in the big city, while his brother John (Elgort) is the complete opposite – outgoing, fun and adventurous. As the two divide each day into 12-hour shifts where they communicate only via daily video sessions to recount the day’s activities, secrets start to be uncovered that threatens to ruin the two sibling’s lives. Additionally, their delicate balance is ruined when they become emotionally involved with the same woman (Suki Waterhouse, Assassination Nation).

The unrated 2018 sci-fi-drama also features Patricia Clarkson (Easy A) and Matthew Bomer (In Time) in its cast.
