In Michael Sarnoski‘s revenge thriller PIG, Nicolas Cage stars as a reclusive truffle hunter in Oregon whose prize hunting pig is kidnapped, forcing him to return to old stomping grounds in Portland and confront his past. With Adam Arkin, Alex Wolff (HEREDITARY).
“While the plot synopsis of Nicolas Cage searching for his kidnapped pig might lead some moviegoers to think ‘Pig’ is some unconventional riff on the ‘Taken’ franchise, the trailer suggests an experience far different. ‘Pig’ seems to operate more in a character study mode than a thriller, although it certainly has elements of the latter.” (Indiewire)
“As it proceeds, it expands its vision and compassion, even as it de-escalates the tension. It’s not about the thing it’s about, except that it ultimately is totally about the thing it’s about.” (New York Magazine)
“At a time when so many people are struggling to find something of value in their lives, when people are fleeing jobs, cities, futures they thought they wanted, Cage has crafted a quiet soliloquy about grasping onto something that has meaning.” (Austin Chronicle)
“‘The Tokyo Story’ of pig movies.” (The Lens)
