The 2002 comedy Adaptation will be released on 4K Ultra HD Dec. 6 for its 20th anniversary from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Director Spike Jonze delivers a comedy that blends fictional characters and situations with the lives of real people: obsessive orchid hunter John Laroche (Chris Cooper, in an Academy Award-winning performance, 2002, Best Supporting Actor), New Yorker journalist Susan Orlean (Meryl Streep), Hollywood screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Nicolas Cage) and his twin brother Donald (also Cage). In the film, as Charlie struggles to adapt Orlean’s best-selling book The Orchid Thief, he writes himself into his own movie.
The film is newly remastered in 4K resolution from the original camera negative, with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos audio plus original theatrical 5.1.
Special features include the “Behind the Scenes in the Swamp” featurette and theatrical trailer.
