Adaptation

Of the screenwriters of the early twenty-first century, Charlie Kaufman might have the most revealing love/hate relationship with books. In Adaptation, he writes himself into the film from the beginning.

Charlie Kaufman, played by Nicolas Cage, is a confused Los Angeles screenwriter overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy, and by the screenwriting ambitions of his freeloading twin brother Donald (also played by Nicolas Cage). While struggling to adapt The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean (Meryl Streep), Kaufman’s life spins from pathetic to bizarre. Do all screenwriters secretly wish they were writing books?

Free. Accessible seats available.

The Clark celebrates the sesquicentennial of the Williamstown Library. On March 9, 1874, the town of Williamstown approved a free public library for its residents. 150 years later, the library continues to enrich the town, making it an interesting, vibrant, active, and involved community. Several months of anniversary celebrations will be held during 2024, including this film series celebrating the transformative power of reading.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
