WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Thursday, April 4, the Clark Art Institute hosts a free screening of the 2002 film "Adaptation," the final installment in its five-part Williamstown Public Library 150th Anniversary Film Series. 
In celebration of the sesquicentennial of the Williamstown Library, this film series explores the transformative power of reading. The Clark shows the film at 6 pm in its auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center.
According to a press release:
Of the screenwriters of the early twenty-first century, Charlie Kaufman might have the most revealing love/hate relationship with books. In Adaptation, he writes himself into the film from the beginning. Charlie Kaufman, played by Nicolas Cage, is a confused Los Angeles screenwriter overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy and self-loathing, and by the screenwriting ambitions of his freeloading twin brother Donald (also played by Nicolas Cage). While struggling to adapt The Orchid Thief by Susan Orlean (Meryl Streep), Kaufman's life spins from pathetic to bizarre.
Free. Accessible seats available; for information, call 413 549 0524.
