About the Movie

The Hunt is a disturbing depiction of how a lie is taken as 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. Lucas is just starting to get his life back together after losing his job and facing a difficult divorce, when his life is shattered by an untruthful remark, throwing his small community into a collective state of hysteria. As the lie spreads, Lucas is forced to fight a lonely battle for his life and dignity.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It is a devastating film to watch, a heedful one, and a tragic reminder that no matter how well a life has been conducted, the mere whiff of such scandalous behavior is condemnation enough. – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Jul 12, 2013

Fresh: An intense, hard to watch drama, of a man's life torn apart by his fellow citizens. The performance is skilled enough that it won the top acting award at last year's Cannesfestival. – Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 25, 2013

Fresh: [A] harrowing but flawed study of an innocent man accused of pedophilia. – Peter Keough, Boston Globe, Jul 18, 2013

Fresh: Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen delivers an astonishingly restrained and expressive central performance in The Hunt, an engrossing psycho-social drama by Thomas Vinterberg. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Jul 25, 2013

Great movie

Love it... A must see


Will get the Oscar!

Disturbing. Well done.

You hear of this type of thing happening, but I suspect innocent people never think it could happen to them. Sad when you might want to reach out and touch or hug a child because you care, but then it could be mistaken and viewed as something sinister. As an adult, I never, ever touch a child for any reason.....just because of this type of situation. Excellent movie, beautifully acted, achingly sad.
