Adaptation | Cage-a-rama 2

Sun 6 January 2019

Adaptation (Spike Jonze, 2002)

Nicolas Cage is Charlie Kaufman, a confused LA screenwriter overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy, sexual frustration, self-loathing, and by the screenwriting ambitions of his freeloading twin brother Donald (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's book, become strangely intertwined as each one's search for passion collides with the others'.

NB This screening replaces Zandalee, which we are now unable to screen due to an unfortunate, unexpected and unavoidable change in licensor - with the late licensor's agreement lapsing, the current rights holder is unclear and may take some time to confirm #Cagearama2020

Thanks to Park Circus
