Pig ★★★★½

One of the most soft and touching films I have seen in some time, Pig confronts every revenge cliché with a tender response. It meets violence by turning the other cheek, heartlessness with empathy, hate with love. When I exited the theater the green on trees were a little more vibrant and the air felt a bit more crisp. A film that will make you take the long way home just for the sake of scenery. The story stays purposefully contained, casting a mood upon the viewer that sedates them not with melancholy, but an inner peace that lasts with each reflection on the picture. An inner peace that one might find when in solitude admiring the sunrise. A really beautiful story, Pig is one of my new personal favorites of 2021.
