A synopsis for Dream Scenario describes Cage’s character as a humdrum professor who suddenly becomes the big man on campus after appearing in everyone’s dreams. “We are thrilled to present this year’s extraordinary films in the Platform programme, and especially delighted to present Kristoffer Borgli’s latest film Dream Scenario, starring Nicolas Cage, as Platform’s opening film,” Robyn Citizen said in a statement. She added that the film “has sharp, timely observations about social media culture – especially ‘going viral’ – and its impact on the way that we interact with others in our day-to-day life.” “Cage delivers some of his finest work,” she added of the Academy Award-winner’s performance in the new film, which will also mark his fifth appearance on the big screen so far this year.
