This Danish drama looks at the consequences of a false accusation of child sexual abuse

Thomas Vinterberg's quiet, provocative drama, The Hunt, explores the devastating effects an accusation of child sexual abuse can have, both on those intimately involved and on the wider community. Lucas (Mad Mikkelsen) lives alone in a small Danish town; he's divorced, with sporadic custody of his teenage son. But he enjoys the male company of the town's hunting group, and is a lively, caring worker at a kindergarten. Then, one of the children — the daughter of his best friend — makes an accusation, and Lucas' world falls apart under the growing suspicion of the townsfolk.
