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.
