Just viewed "Adaptation" with Nick Cage and Meryl Streep. It is one of the most creative films I've seen. I'm not a fan of Nicolas Cage, but his acting is very solid in this. It is brilliantly done. At Amazon.com, you can read the entire first chapter of the book The Orchid Thief: A True Story of Beauty and Obsession (by Susan Orlean), the book on which this film is based.
