“Jonathan” tells the story of two brothers whose personalities are housed in one body. Jonathan, an aspiring architect, is conscious from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., while John, who works as a temp at a law firm, has the night life to himself between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. At the end of every shift (which includes four hours of sleep), each leaves a video to fill the other in.
Both brothers are played by Ansel Elgort, who — with a few noticeable mannerisms and some rigorous hair brushing — makes each character distinct. Still, the movie, the feature debut of Bill Oliver, unfolds primarily from the hyper-organized Jonathan’s perspective. Jonathan, feeling tired, suspects that John isn’t telling him everything. A private investigator reveals the problem: a girlfriend, Elena (Suki Waterhouse), with whom Jonathan eventually becomes involved as well.
The private investigator is played by Matt Bomer (credited here as Matthew Bomer) and he has only one scene, mostly released as a clip.
