Being John Malkovich

What would you do if you found a doorway in your workplace that led, via a mysterious portal, into the head of actor John Malkovich, giving you the chance to experience everything he does for 15 minutes? For puppeteer/file clerk John Cusack, pet shop employee/wife Cameron Diaz and sexy co-worker Catherine Keener, the find leads to a money-making scheme, a twisted love triangle and a multi-layered identity crisis. Director Spike Jonze and scripter Charlie Kaufman's outrageously original comedy also stars Orson Bean, and John Malkovich as himself.
