Pig Rated 15


Dir. Michael Sarnoski. USA, 2021. 1h 31m. Starring Nicolas Cage, Alex Wolff, Cassandra Violet, Adam Arkin, Julia Bray, Elijah Ungvary.

A truffle hunter who lives alone in the Oregonian wilderness journeys to Portland in search of his beloved foraging pig who has been kidnapped. Nicolas Cage gives a touching, low-key performance in this lyrical road movie about an individual dealing with past and present loss.

‘Anyone who's been keeping faith with Nicolas Cage, through all his career's snaking cul-de-sacs and mad escapades, has a tremendous reward in store when they sit down to Pig.’ ★★★★★ Tim Robey, The Telegraph

‘Rich, poignant filmmaking anchored by two magnetic leads…It’s Cage’s most thoughtful and restrained performance in a long time, exhibiting a gentleness we don’t often get to see.’ ★★★★ Hannah Strong, Little White Lies
