Revival Series Presents: Adaptation
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. While struggling to adapt “The Orchid Thief,” by Susan Orlean, Kaufman’s life spins from pathetic to bizarre. The lives of Kaufman, Orlean’s book, become strangely intertwined as each one’s search for passion collides with the others’.
Curated by Janine and Axel of Guermantes Vintage and Strange Desires.
The Revival Series will feature a variety of films from modern selections to obscure, cult and classic cinema with dark themes and strong aesthetics. We have a feeling they’ll be keeping it weird, just how we like it.
