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)
