The Hunt

What's it about:

This Danish-language psychological drama focuses on the difficult subject of child abuse and the effects a false accusation of such a crime can bring about.Mads Mikkelsen plays Lucas, a man who finally gets his life in order after a tough divorce. He now has a new girlfriend, a new job as a kindergarten teacher and is re-establishing a relationship with his son, Marcus. But everything changes when a terrible lie is told - Lucas is a child molester. Although false, the news quickly spreads and ignites a witch hunt, threatening to destroy the life he worked so hard to build.

What the critics say:

You leave The Hunt unsettled in the best sense. Its images and implications are likely to stay in your head a long time.
Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

Through it all, we see an idyllic-looking community, where glorious fall colors fade into twinkling December snow - a pretty frame for a terrifying story of a modern-day witch hunt.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

Thomas Vinterberg's The Hunt conveys the sinister swirl of persecution more vividly than any film I can remember.
Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News

The Hunt's inexorability feels derived more from thematic or ideological concerns than any organic necessity.
James Adams, Globe and Mail

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
