Nicolas Cage and Nicolas Cage star in this film about the tortuous creative journey.
Dir Spike Jonze
With Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep, Chris Cooper, Tilda Swinton
Charlie Kaufman’s multi-layered script centres on scriptwriter Charlie Kaufman (Cage), who’s struggling to turn a novel by Susan Orlean (Streep) about an orchid thief (Cooper) into a viable screenplay – while also having problems with his love life and his twin brother Donald. Feverishly imaginative, the film’s freewheeling, extremely astute exploration of the creative life is frequently hilarious and consistently surprising.
