She is offered a job by Luanne, the owner, and, hoping to lose herself in the obscurity of the place, accepts it. But soon Laine realizes she has stumbled into an even bigger and more dangerous situation. [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW Film Festival]
Charlie Kaufman (Cage) writes the way he lives, with great difficulty. His twin brother Donald (also Cage) lives the way he writes, with foolish abandon. Susan (Streep) writes about life, but can’t live it. John’s (Cooper) life is a book, waiting to be adapted. One story. Four lives. A million ways it can end.
