Being John Malkovich
Ever wanted to be someone else? Specifically, have you ever wished to be the Oscar-nominated star of Dangerous Liaisons, The Sheltering Sky, Portrait of a Lady, and Con Air? Well now you can explore this fantasy in Charlie Kaufman's screenplay for the hit comedy directed by Spike Jonze, starring John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, Catherine Keener, and the inimitable Mr. Malkovich himself.
Craig Schwartz is nearing the end of his string. A gifted street-puppeteer, he nevertheless finds that New York City has little use, or tolerance, for his special talents. Worse, his ten-year marriage to Lotte, a workaholic pet-store employee, has turned stale. Then the nimble-fingered Craig lands a job as a filing clerk in an office building. There he meets bored, beautiful Mazine, but his attempts to woo her are smartly rebuffed. Rejected and dejected, Craig retreats into his work. One night, rummaging behind a filing cabinet, he comes upon a hidden passageway that leads straight into the mind of John Malkovich! The hapless Malkovich is not consulted, and quickly finds his body becoming a battleground as feuding lovers, not to mention paying customers, start taking turns to see the world through his eyes.
