Pig. Even the title is guaranteed to make you cautious about buying a ticket.
Do yourself a favor and see it.
One of the best movies I’ve seen this year.
A lot of review attention focuses on Nicolas Cage which is obvious and deserved, but the other characters and the dialogue and pacing and scene choices are superb. It is a quiet movie that makes a lot of emotional and mental noise.
To say more about it would spoil too much. To say it is a movie about a recluse who wants to get back his truffle finding pig that is stolen from him is the understatement of the year. In its subtle way, a lot more is going on and unfolds.
The best movie out that no one is seeing.
