Pig ★★★★½

Pig is an interesting film. It follows a familiar setup, then proceeds to go in a completely different tonal direction. Nicolas Cage anchors this film excellently. It's hard to believe it even is Cage at times, as he delivers a very quiet and restrained performance, far from his standard overacting. The film also manages to nail the emotional impact of its ending. A meaningful and intriguingly understated film.
