Synecdoche, New York

Directed by Charlie Kaufman
United States, 2008
Drama, Comedy, Avant-Garde


Life is looking bleak for theater director Caden Cotard. His wife and daughter have left him, his therapist is not helping him with his problems, and a strange disease is causing his body to shut down. As part of his new play, Caden decides to create a life-size replica of NYC inside a warehouse.

Our take

Charlie Kaufman, the writing hand behind some of Spike Jonze’s most praised brain-teasers—Being John Malkovich, Adaptation—made his directing debut with this dreamlike, profound portrait of a creative mind in artistic crisis. Featuring a towering performance from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman!
