Winter with the Writers
Invite Only! To be invited to this event, become an Enzian Film Society Member.
Nicolas Cage is Charlie Kaufman, a confused L.A. 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 and Orlean’s book become strangely intertwined as each one’s search for passion collides with the others’.
Susan Orlean, writer of The Orchid Thief which the film is based on, will be in attendance for a post-film Q&A with the audience.
