DIRECTOR: Thomas Vinterberg - DENMARK

Vinterberg’s devastating drama follows an upstanding member of a small, close-knit Danish community charged with an unthinkable crime. Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen) is a kindergarten aide beloved by students and parents alike, until a girl in his class accuses him of inappropriately touching her. No sooner is the charge leveled than Lucas is deemed guilty in the public eye and then ostracized—indeed, hunted—by his former friends and neighbors. Knowing that Lucas is indeed innocent adds a chilling layer of horror to an already breathless tale. A provocative, all-too-believable study in mob mentality and the unfailing belief of adults in the innocence of children, The Hunt is a gripping psychological drama with a stellar performance by Mikkelsen, who won the Best Actor Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. (115 mins.)

Filmography: The Celebration (98), It’s All About Love (03), Dear Wendy (04), Submarino (10)

Winner of the Audience Award at the Vancouver International Film Festival.
