The Hunt–December 9, 2013

Mads Mikkelsen The Hunt 250 In The Hunt, Director Thomas Vinterberg has created a masterful Danish film in which the lead, Mads Mikkelsen (A Royal Affair, Casino RoyaleHannibal) won Best Actor Award at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.  He portrays a nursery school teacher living in a small Danish village who is wrongfully accused of sexually assaulting a child.  The tension builds as the intricate plot reveals conflicting evidence in the case.  We witness the unraveling of a life affected by the community’s harsh reaction to the story. An additional interesting aspect is the struggle Lucas (MIkkelsen) has in order to maintain his romantic relationship with his co-worker, Nadia throughout his ordeal. The Hunt will have you glued to the edge of your seat awaiting the outcome of these dramatic events. The film was selected as the Danish entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards.
