A pig, truffles and a tormented soul.
The story is not complicated, but the emotional journey is only felt by someone who has suffered loss. Nicholas Cage finally gives a performance without his superficial, whining, off the wall craziness. His character is genuine and carries you through his emotional torment, genius and sadness with a believable performance. He reconciles the loss of his wife through the loss of a pet pig he loves. The pig representing the love he had for his deceased wife a decade ago. The line of the movie that tells the most of his character's message, "We don't get a lot of things to really care about", hones in on the theme of most people's lives, remember what is important in life, not the fame and fortune, but those you love. Great movie, great directing and a solid performance by the cast.
