SYNOPSIS: Nicolas Cage is Charlie Kaufman, a confused L.A. screenwriter
overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy, sexual frustration, self-loathing-and
by the screenwriting ambitions of his freeloading twin brother Donald (also
Nicolas Cage). While struggling to adapt "The Orchid Thief," by Susan Orlean
(Meryl Streep), Kaufman's life spins from pathetic to bizarre. The lives of
Kaufman, Orlean and John Laroche (Chris Cooper), the orchid poacher and the
subject of Orlean's book, become strangely intertwined as each one's search
for passion collides with the others'. Screenplay by Charlie Kaufman and
Donald Kaufman and directed by Spike Jonze.
