Pig – Directed by Michael Sarnoski and starring Nicolas Cage

Synopsis:

In a small cabin, somewhere in the austere wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, lives a shaggy-haired monosyllabic man (Nicolas Cage) and his smush-faced, red-furred truffle hunter pig (Brandy, understudy Cora). He talks to his pig, he cooks meals for his pig, and he forages with his pig for truffles, the rare, delicious subterranean mushrooms he sells to a prickly upstart truffle distributor (Alex Wolff) who pulls up onto his property in his yellow Camaro once a week. One evening, the man’s pig is stolen by a violent gang, and he vows to do everything he can to bring her back. So begins director Michael Sarnoski’s film Pig, which spins a meditative, emotional tale of companionship and acceptance of loss around a subdued performance from Cage the likes of which haven’t been seen in a very long time. The movie is as moody and deliberate as its protagonist, owing less to a straightforward thriller like Taken and more to the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, a journey into the underworld on faith alone, in which love is tested, harsh truths are revealed, and heartbreak is inevitable.

Cast: 

Nicolas Cage, Alex Wolff, Adam Arkin, Nina Belforte

In March 2020, Neon acquired U.S. distribution rights to the film. Pig had a theatrical release in the United States on July 16, 2021.Followed by screenings in the UK and Republic of Ireland on August 20, 2021.
