2021 PROXY Fall Film Festival: PIG

The 2021 PROXY Fall Film Festival of outdoor cinema continues on Friday, October 22nd at the PROXY Walk-in Theater with:


Directed by Michael Sarnoski, 2021 [R]

“Despite a few scenes here and there of Rob snarling, “I want my pig back!” this movie is not the kind of offbeat goof Cage has become infamous for lately. “Pig” is a rich character study, marked by several riveting Cage monologues, as Rob ruminates on the tricky taste of persimmons, or as he warns the Portland status-seekers that the things they think matter will be wiped away when catastrophe comes.”

 – Noel Murray, LA Times

PIG stars Nicolas Cage as Robin Feld, a former Portland chef who has retired to the woods to hunt for truffles alongside his trained pig, Apple. When Apple is stolen, Robin returns to the city and restaurant community he left behind. Poised to be a smash-and-grab thriller, PIG sheds expectations and plays out as a meditation on the nature of loss and its role in the human experience. Alex Wolff lends his talents in a supporting role, playing a truffle broker whose family history is tied to Robin’s former restaurant.
