Following up their acclaimed debut, Being John Malkovich, screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and director Spike Jonze are on top form with Adaptation. This is storytelling at its most bewildering, brilliant and inventive. Cage is quite superb in the dual role of the Kaufman brothers; they may appear identical but they have completely different personalities and Cage makes them both believable people. Cage is more than ably supported by Streep and Cooper along with a host of other stars. There is so much to see in this film that any attempt at a synopsis is futile - not to be missed.
