Acting / Characters
Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood sounds like an odd pairing and you would be right. That said they work exceptionally well together in this black comedy crime thriller. Most of the film revolves around these two characters and it’s really is fascinating seeing the story and their relationship unfold.
