Nicolas Cage has managed that most difficult Hollywood balancing act - critical and commercial success - and his films, from Rumble Fish to Moonstruck, and from Wild at Heart to Raising Arizona, have always reflected that. Never was this combined success more evident than when he won the best actor Oscar in 1996 for his portrayal of a doomed alcoholic in Mike Figgis' dark and haunting Leaving Las Vegas and in the same year scored a huge commercial hit co-starring with Sean Connery in the action thriller The Rock. Uncaged reveals for the first time, through scores of interviews with his family, friends and co-stars, the rise to superstardom of the prodigal son of one of Hollywood's most complex and controversial dynasties - the Coppolas.
