Adaptation (2002) (C)
"This must-see film is the most clever, best-acted movie of the year, with Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper working at the top of their games for writer Charlie Kaufman and director Spike Jonze, the creators of Being John Malkovich."
Bob Strauss, L.A. Daily News
Director Spike Jonze delivers a stunningly original comedy that seamlessly blends fictional characters and situations with the lives of real people: obsessive orchid hunter John Laroche (Cooper), New Yorker journalist Susan Orlean (Streep), Hollywood screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Cage), and his twin brother, Donald (also Cage).
As Charlie struggles to adapt Orlean's best-selling book The Orchid Thief, he writes himself into his own movie.
The various stories crash into one another exploding into a wildly imaginative film.
