Sunday 8.30pm, Showtime Drama (MA 15+)
Writer Charlie Kaufman, working for the second time with director Spike Jonze, allows all his anxieties about Hollywood to spill over in a movie about a screenwriter (named Charlie Kaufman) who turns to his less-talented twin brother, Donald, for help in turning a book into a screenplay. Nicolas Cage pulls double duty as the twins. Kaufman was nominated for an Oscar for his screenplay and co-star Chris Cooper won Best Supporting Actor. Meryl Streep and Tilda Swinton also feature. The word “quirky” springs immediately to mind but isn’t quite adequate.
