Plot Summary: "The Hunt" depicts how a lie becomes the 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.
Mads Mikkelsen (from NBC's "Hannibal" TV series and last year's Oscar nominated film “A Royal Affair”) plays Lucas, a highly regarded teacher who has been forced to start over having overcome a tough divorce. Just as things are starting to go his way, his life is shattered. An untruthful remark throws the small community into a collective state of hysteria. As the lie spreads, Lucas is forced to fight a lonely fight for his life and dignity.
Co-founder of the Dogme movement and director of award-winning international hit "Festen" (“The Celebration”) Thomas Vinterberg delivers yet another powerful drama that is sure to leave its mark.
