Not a revenge film, but a film about grief

A mature film with very little violence. A film that draws conclusions in ways that are evolved and go against the current climate of cinema, proving that violence/revenge is not always the answer to everything. Pig is a film that effectively humanizes characters that many viewers would find extremely difficult to empathize with, and the film’s powerful narrative is elevated by Nicolas Cage— and even more so by Alex Wolff’s exceptional performance, which is one of the film‘s highlights. Oscar worthy in the categories of: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor (Alex Wolff), Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Film Editing.
