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 (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, Orlean's book, become strangely intertwined as each one's search for passion collides with the others'.

The Lost Language of Cranes

Although Philip Benjamin (Angus Macfadyen) has been out to his friends for some time, he steels himself to announce his sexual orientation to his conservative parents. Though his mother, Rose (Eileen Atkins), is relatively accepting, Philip's father, Owen (Brian Cox), is thunderstruck by the news because it forces him to come to grips with his own furtive homosexuality. Meanwhile, Philip develops a close friendship with his ex-boyfriend's housemate, Jerene (Cathy Tyson), a linguistics student.
