"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 (Chris Cooper), NewYorker journalist Susan Orlean (Meryl Streep), Hollywood screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Nicholas Cage), and his twin brother, Donald (also Cage). As Charlie struggles to adapt Orlean's best-selling book "The OrchidThief," he writes himself into his own movie. The various stories crash into one another exploding into a wildly imaginative film. ADAPTATION, is at once a hilarious drama and a moving comedy."
"Charlie Kaufman: To begin... To begin... How to start? I'm hungry. I should get coffee. Coffee would help me think. Maybe I should write something first, then reward myself with coffee. Coffee and a muffin. Okay, so I need to establish the themes. Maybe a banana-nut. That's a good muffin."
