Dream Scenario

Comedy, Horror Rated: R 102 min

Nicolas Cage stars in this black comedy about Paul, an ordinary college professor who suddenly achieves viral fame after appearing in millions of people’s dreams. When his nighttime appearances take a nightmarish turn, Paul is forced to navigate his newfound stardom. Produced by Ari Aster (Midsommar, Hereditary, Beau Is Afraid) and written and directed by Norwegian up-and-coming director Kristoffer Borgli, the film has already gotten serious Oscar buzz, especially for Cage’s absurdly funny performance. Cage recently received a Golden Globe nomination for his role.

“Nicolas Cage goes delightfully, derangedly meta in Dream Scenario, a smart, dizzyingly entertaining horror-comedy that morphs into scathing social satire.” — Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
“It’s a savagely funny showcase for Cage at his very best.” — Wendy Ide, The Observer (UK)
