The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent Storyline
Nick Cage, a famous actor in Hollywood, is having a tough time of it after being passed over for numerous important film parts and is being harassed by his younger (and more successful) self, “Nicky.” Years of emotional neglect have also damaged his relationships with his ex-wife Olivia and daughter Addy.
Nick wants to give up acting after a major setback in his film career and an embarrassing incident at Addy’s birthday party. In order to cash in on his agent Richard Fink’s ambiguous promise of $1 million, he travels to Majorca to meet wealthy playboy Javi Gutierrez and to celebrate the latter’s birthday as the guest of honor.
Nick is first irritated by Javi’s neediness and demand that they create an improvised movie based on a script he authored, but he is soon inspired by Javi’s tenacity, and the two rapidly bond over their surprising shared love of films like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Paddington 2.
Nick is then confronted by CIA agents Vivian and Martin shortly after. They believe Javi, who they allege became wealthy through arms trade, is responsible for the abduction of Maria, the daughter of a Catalan anti-crime leader, in the hopes that he will withdraw from the race. Nick claims his acting instincts would have revealed if Javi was a criminal, but he ultimately agrees to assist the CIA.
