Cape Town, 14 September 2021: The award-winning drama film Pig, co-written and directed by Michael Sarnoski in his directorial debut is now available to view on DStv Box Office as a Cinema Premiere. Pig stars Nicolas Cage, Alex Wolff, Adam Arkin and Julia Bray. The film chronicles a truffle hunter who lives alone in the wilderness and must return to his past when his beloved pig gets kidnapped. Both Cage’s performance and the film have received exceptional international acclaim.

Pig is a brutal, elegant, mournful, captivating and magnificently filmed story. This is one of the best movies of the year” – Chicago Sun Times

 “Nicolas Cage at his best…” - Deadline

“Pig” is unexpectedly touching; a showcase for Cage’s brilliance, it’s a revelation” - Variety

Robin "Rob" Feld (Nicolas Cage) is a former Portland-based chef turned reclusive and asocial truffle forager. Living in a cabin deep in the Oregon forests, he hunts for truffles with the help of his prized foraging pig. He sells the truffles to Amir (Ales Wolff), a young and inexperienced supplier of luxury ingredients to high-end restaurants.

One night, Rob is assaulted by unidentified assailants who also steal his pig. He reaches out to Amir, who helps him locate a group of impoverished drug addicts suspected by another local truffle-hunter of being the culprits. They claim to have given the pig to someone from downtown Portland. Rob and Amir infiltrate an underground fighting ring run by Edgar (Darius Pierce), an old acquaintance of Rob's who provides them with clues on the whereabouts of Rob's pig, and so the search begins, with many a twist in the tale.

“Nicolas Cage has always been a firm favourite for South African audiences, and international critics have praised his performance in Pig as some of his best work in years,” said Benjamin Cowley, CEO Gravel Road Distribution Group. “Cage plays an intriguing lead character in a film filled with suspense, intrigue and unexpected turns,” he added.
