Being John Malkovich (Newmarket Shooting Script)
Synopses & Reviews
First time in the Newmarket Shooting Script® series, the Oscar®-nominated classic from 1999, starring John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, Catherine Keener, and the inimitable John Malkovich, and directed by Spike Jonze.
Ever wanted to be someone else? Well, now you can explore this fantasy in Charlie Kaufmans screenplay for the hit comedy.
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.
In addition to the original script, this Newmarket Shooting Script® Book features a hillarious, angst-ridden introduction by Kaufman.
