It is wickedly playful in its construction, it gets the story told, and it doubles back and kids itself.

VENUE: MALENY COMMUNITY CENTRE
23 MAPLE STREET MALENY 

A fictional drama about a writer struggling to adapt a (real) book for the screen.  The renowned and always highly original screenwriter Charlie Kaufman imagines himself as this shy and unconfident person plagued by writer’s block and an irritating (fictional) twin brother.  Nicholas Cage plays both, with Meryl Streep as Susan Orlean the author of The Orchid Thief.  There is some sharp satire of the pat conventional advice given to aspiring writers but Charlie’s aspirations to artistic integrity are vexed as increasingly bizarre events unfold.  There is plenty of humour here but important questions too:  just where do fiction and truth begin and end?
