The Hunt


Synopsis

Thomas Vinterberg directs this Danish thriller. Mads Mikkelsen stars as Lukas, a recently-divorced primary school teacher locked in an acrimonious custody battle over his teenage son Marcus (Lasse Fogelstrøm). When five-year-old Klara (Annika Wedderkop), the daughter of Lukas’s best friend Theo (Thomas Bo Larsen), tells the headmistress of the school – untruthfully – that Lukas has acted abusively towards her, the accusations quickly escalate and Lukas soon faces unanimous condemnation from everyone around him, including his closest friends.
