The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

Facing financial ruin, Nicolas Cage must channel his iconic characters to save himself and loved ones.


Why watch this film?

Nicolas Cage was an actor who had all the potential to be one of Hollywood's biggest names, but ended up going down a questionable path. Especially after some big flops ('The Sorcerer's Apprentice' and 'National Treasure: Book of Secrets'), he ended up prioritizing dubious projects and films with no artistic quality. It seemed like Cage was doomed to failure. Until the star began to turn things around, with films like 'Mandy' and 'Pig', until the complete consecration with 'The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent'. A film that puts the actor in a cult category, difficult to achieve, the feature film tells the story of Nicolas Cage himself - although with a fictional veneer, of course - living a complicated phase of his career after not getting an important role. Disillusioned, he accepts his manager's (Neil Patrick Harris) suggestion to accept the invitation of a Spanish billionaire (Pedro Pascal) who wants Cage at his birthday party. From then on, the actor's misadventure begins in Spanish lands, with a mix of comedy of errors, action sequences and, above all, a tribute to Nicolas Cage's work that shows that, despite the mistakes in project choices, he is undeniably one of those stars that we can (and should!) appreciate his work.
