DOUBLE DOMINIC COOPER ON GREAT! MOVIES

Friday, February 17th, 2023

Based on a gripping, unbelievable true story of money, power and decadence, channel premiere THE DEVIL’S DOUBLE (Tuesday 21st, 9pm) takes a white-knuckle ride deep into the lawless playground of excess and violence that was Baghdad, 1987.
Summoned from the frontline to Saddam Hussein’s palace, Iraqi army lieutenant Latif Yahia (Dominic Cooper) is thrust into the highest echelons of the ‘royal family’ when he’s ordered to become the ‘fiday’ or body double to Saddam’s son, the notorious ‘Black Prince’ Uday Hussein (also Dominic Cooper), a reckless, sadistic party boy with a rabid hunger for sex and brutality. With his and his family’s lives at stake, Latif must surrender his former self forever as he learns to walk, talk and act like Uday.
