Starring Nicholas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds
The film opens with Eep (Emma Stone), a girl in a family of cavemen living in pre-historic times, talking about how her family is one of the few to survive nearby, mainly due to the strict rules of her father, Grug (Nicolas Cage). When in their cave home, Grug tells a story to the rest of the family, which includes his wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), daughter Sandy, son Thunk (Clark Duke), and his mother-in-law (Cloris Leachman). With a character that mirrors Eep’s curious nature, he uses this story to warn the family that exploration and new things pose a threat to their survival. This irritates the bored and adventurous Eep, and when the family falls asleep after dark, she ignores her father’s advice and leaves the cave.
