Discussion About Being John Malkovich

  1. Aaron Taylor

    I couldn’t see anywhere on the page to download the script, so I googled “Being John Malkovich screenplay” and read what I think is the original screenplay by Charlie Kaufmann. After I read the screenplay I looked up the movie on Wikipedia and got a very different synopsis than the screenplay that I read. The script that I read and the synopsis of the actual film part ways at about the half-way point. I hope I didn’t read the wrong script. It was good, but I imagine it’s a lot weirder than what became the actual film, which I have to see now.
