Pig

Get a fresh helping of Cage rage with Pig, a dramatic new thriller from Neon starring Nicolas Cage!

Cage plays Rob, a truffle hunter who lives alone in the Oregonian wilderness. When his beloved foraging pig is kidnapped, he leaves the woods behind and returns to his old hometown of Portland. Searching the city high and low for his pig, Rob is forced to revisit and confront old demons from his past.

Shot on location in Portland, Oregon, Pig is a gripping feature debut from director Michael Sarnoski.

 


“Even through its various webs of tragedy, relentless ambition, and destruction for capital gain-Pig remarkably and overwhelmingly champions care and kindness.” – Cody Corrall, Chicago Reader

“The unpredictable Cage delivers some of his best work in years. Rating: 4/4.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

“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.” – Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle
