About the Screenplay:

HARD TO FIND BOOK, only a very limited number of copies are still available.

Ever wanted to be someone else? Well, now you can explore this fantasy in Charlie Kaufman's screenplay for the hit comedy Being John Malkovich.

Being John Malkovich is a screenplay by Charlie Kaufman. The Oscar-nominated classic from 1999, starring John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, Catherine Keener, and the inimitable John Malkovich, and directed by Spike Jonze.

Craig Schwartz (John Cusack), a gifted street-puppeteer, finds that New York City has little use for his special talents. Worse, his ten-year marriage to Lotte (Cameron Diaz), a workaholic pet-store employee, has turned stale. Then Craig lands a job as a filing clerk in an office building, and 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.

Being John Malkovich includes a hilarious, angst-ridden introduction by Charlie Kaufman and a facsimile of the complete shooting script.

What people say:

"This smart, fanciful and brilliantly staged comedy takes a truly one-of-a-kind premise and makes it, of all things, a weirdly profound meditation on consciousness, identity, fame, gender, and reality." — Baltimore Sun

"A terrific original screenplay by Charlie Kaufman...intriguingly prophetic, irresistible, nimble, and very funny." — The New York Times
