About the Fall Series: Spike Jonze

About the Film


Directed by Spike Jonze
114 min
Rated R

Spike Jonze delivers a stunningly original comedy that seamlessly blends fictional characters and situations with the lives of real people: obsessive orchid hunter John Laroche, New Yorker journalist Susan Orlean, Hollywood screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, and his twin brother, Donald. As Charlie struggles to adapt Orlean’s best-selling book The Orchid Thief, he writes himself into his own movie.

Films are presented free of charge on Level 3 at 7 p.m. Drinks and free popcorn are available at the museum café, SO.

AAM education programs are made possible by the Questrom Education Fund. Additional support for Movies at the Museum is provided by the Etkin Family Digital Media and Moving Image Fund and Dancing Bear Aspen.
