The Hunt


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.



“It is rare that a film can make you laugh, cry and shake with fury all at the same time; even rarer when it does so for the right reasons” – Robbie Collin, The Daily Telegraph
