Adaptation

Rated R • 114 minutes

When successful yet insecure screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Nicolas Cage) is hired to adapt a nonfiction book about a fanatical orchid breeder, he is completely stumped. Though on the surface the book is about the flower-poachers adventures, it's also about the desire in all of us to experience passion. This longing plagues the book's author, Susan Orlean (Meryl Streep), and Charlie himself. It doesn't help that Charlie's twin brother, Donald (also Nicolas Cage), who has moved in with him, writes and immediately sells a screenplay.
