Nicolas Cage plays... Nicolas Cage! Unemployed and on the verge of a financial crisis, Cage finds himself forced to attend a superfan's birthday on Mallorca.

Language: English, subtitels: Dutch

When Cage arrives in Mallorca, superfan Javi turns out to be a prime suspect in a huge CIA investigation. Cage is forced to live up to his own legend, channeling his most iconic and beloved on-screen characters. With a career that was built for this moment, Nicolas Cage has to play the part of his life to save himself and his loved ones.

This film is the perfect antidote for Blue Monday.
It’s great to watch a famous Hollywood actor take himself not too seriously. It’s also fun to watch a bunch of people having a ball while making this film. The script is both hilarious and ridiculous at the same time. There’s only one actor who can get away with that…

This film is highly recommended by the Studium Generale film committee because: “You’ll be going on an adventure with NICOLAS F#CKIN’ CAGE in his 100th film role filled with easter eggs, meta jokes and tons of movie references that anyone can resonate with.” 

“It’s original, funny, dramatic, and action-packed without the tonal whiplash one might expect from such an ambitious narrative.” Film Threat.

“The filmmakers craft a metanarrative that also explores the relationship between the actor and his on-screen persona through the lens of contemporary Hollywood filmmaking.” Robert Egbert.

“Nicolas Cage brilliantly embraces, mocks, and subverts his own legacy in an ingeniously demented action comedy that celebrates one of Hollywood’s most uniquely fascinating stars.” We Got This Covered.

“A free-wheeling ride through the best of an actor’s filmography.” Observer.
