The Hunt

Hunt

A film by Thomas Vinterberg
Starring Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Bo Larsen, Annika Wedderkopp

The Hunt is a disturbing depiction of how a lie becomes the truth when gossip, doubt and malice are allowed to flourish and ignite a witch-hunt that soon threatens to destroy an innocent man’s life.

Driven by Mads Mikkelsen’s shattering performance, The Hunt, is a deeply disturbing depiction of how one impulsive lie can ignite a witch-hunt and destroy a man’s life.

In his most powerful film since The Celebration, director Thomas Vinterberg tells the story of Lucas, a beloved school teacher starting his life over after a difficult divorce, who suddenly finds himself at the center of a devastating maelstrom of community hysteria and mob mentality sparked by one vengeful remark.

Both riveting and sometimes difficult to watch, The Hunt, is a psychological horror story about the fragile nature of trust and how willingly a group of lifelong friends will turn on one of their own.

5 out of 5 stars. One of the year’s best films. It shares ??The Celebration??’s devastating dramatic clarity. Mikkelsen gives a career-topping performance. —Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

Riveting, propelled by a shattering performance by Mads Mikkelsen as the blameless man whose life threatens to be destroyed. Vinterberg’s best film since The Celebration. —David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
