劇情簡介:

  蘇珊·奧爾琳(梅麗爾·斯特裏普)寫了本小說,《蘭花竊賊》,描述的是所謂的“蘭花竊賊”約翰·拉羅歇(克裏斯·庫帕)和另外三個西米諾印第安人計畫克隆一種稀有的蘭花,牟取暴利的故事。這是個真實的故事,不過這僅僅是電影的一部分,查理·考夫曼(尼古拉斯·凱奇)和他的孿生兄弟唐納德(尼古拉斯·凱奇)和他們改編這部小說的過程則是電影的另外一部分。這部電影是關於改編一本小說的劇本的改編的故事……   
  改編劇本的查理·考夫曼人到中年,憤世嫉俗,性愛生活充滿挫折,甚至有些自我仇恨,還不時飽受突發奇想、也要寫劇本的孿生兄弟唐納德的威脅。開始改編《蘭花竊賊》以後,這些挫折都加深了。他不得不求助於懶惰的唐納德,而唐納德所受的訓練則是生產充滿了好萊塢式的陳詞濫調,老套橋段的劇本。他花費在他那些爛俗的恐怖片劇本上的時間絲毫不比查理花在這些蘭花竊賊身上的時間少。這兩個兄弟性格迥異,查理內向膽小,而唐納德則恰恰相反。   
  江郎才盡的查理,猜想小說作者蘇珊可能可以幫助他,於是他飛往紐約,尋求她的幫助。可是當他看見這個雍容華貴的女人時,卻緊張的呆若木雞,一句話也說不出來。他把唐納德召到了紐約;卻發現這個故事的結尾一如既往是“好萊塢”模式:性、暴力、毒品...   
  查理的人生因為改編劇本的過程而變得越來越古怪,他和唐納德相互嫉妒,兩個人好像一對分裂的人格。而作家蘇珊則似乎在她的小說主人公拉羅歇那裏找到了她期望已久的激情。每個人的欲望在電影內外發生奇異的衝撞。當一個編劇改編一部小說的企圖被變成電影,會是什麼樣呢?
  While his latest movie Being John Malkovich (1999) is in production, screenwriter Charlie Kaufman is hired by Valerie Thomas to adapt Susan Orlean's non-fiction book "The Orchid Thief" for the screen. Thomas bought the movie rights before Orlean wrote the book, when it was only an article in The New Yorker. The book details the story of rare orchid hunter John Laroche, whose passion for orchids and horticulture made Orlean discover passion and beauty for the first time in her life. Charlie wants to be faithful to the book in his adaptation, but despite Laroche himself being an interesting character in his own right, Charlie is having difficulty finding enough material in Laroche to fill a movie, while equally not having enough to say cinematically about the beauty of orchids. At the same time, Charlie is going through other issues in his life. His insecurity as a person doesn't allow him to act upon his feelings for Amelia Kavan, who is interested in him as a man. And Charlie's twin brother, pretentious Donald Kaufman, has moved into his house with a goal of also becoming a screenwriter. Despite not admiring Donald as a screenwriter, Charlie asks for his advice. Together, they feel that there is some interesting subtext in the book on which Orlean herself can only elaborate, if only Charlie has the nerve to talk to her. If she can't or won't elaborate, they may have to find out the meaning of that subtext on their own.
