About the film:

A truffle hunter who lives alone in the Oregonian wilderness must return to his past in Portland in search of his beloved foraging pig after she is kidnapped.

In an interview on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Nicolas Cage named Pig (2021) as his favorite movie that he has ever made. The critically acclaimed film won the Film Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay and earned Cage a nomination for the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Actor.

“Quiet, unforced and delicate, Pig provides a forum for Nicolas Cage, one of our most dazzling showmen, to get serious and burrow more deeply into his talent than he has in years.”

Empire Magazine
