Synecdoche, New York

A movie to yearn for. Written and directed by Charlie Kaufman and produced by Spike Jonze, the basic premise is as follows: Caden, the main character, is a theatre director. After the inception of his new play, he discovers that his various autonomic functions are shutting down one at a time. The movie goes into themes such as the nature of family, of home, and of male-female relationships, all while blurring reality and representation in a nature.
