A Powerful Film


The Hunt is the most powerful film I've seen this year. International film star Mads Mikkelsen stars as Lucas, a kindergarten assistant teacher whose life is beginning to turn around. He has a new female friend that is supportive. The custody suit for Marcus, his teenage son, is progressing positively and appears that he'll soon be awarded said privileges. Suddenly Lucas is the victim of a innocent lie. Before he can even grasp the social significance of that spiraling lie, he becomes an outcast in his small community; a foul foe in the eyes of all his friends and acquaintances. He's forced to hunt for the truth.

This film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year (2014) and Mikkelsen won Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012. Overall this film has been nominated for 40 international awards and has won 30. This Denmark drama (originally titled Jagten) is shown in Danish with English subtitles. It has an R-rating and runs 115 mins. 

The next time you are looking for something worthwhile to watch, this film would be worthy of the time spent.
