Pig (2021)

Michael Sarnoski directs Nicolas Cage, Alex Wolff and Adam Arkin in this indie thriller where a hermit truffle farmer breaks his seclusion when his beloved pig is stolen.

More a meditation on grief and authenticity than a John Wick style actioner, this is full of gentle surprises. Cage delivers his most grounded performance in decades, yet there are still enough quirky wrinkles to keep the me me meme crowd happy. Has a lovely autumnal look, as if the crew used the soil and twigs encrusted in a boot tread as a palette chart. Minor but worthwhile.
