The Hunt is a disturbing depiction of 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. Having overcome a tough divorce, highly-regarded schoolteacher Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen, Casino Royale, A Royal Affair) has been forced to start over. Just as things are starting to go his way, his life is shattered when an untruthful remark throws his 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. Winner of the 2012 European Film Award for Best Screenwriter (director Thomas Vinterberg, The Celebration, and Tobias Lindholm). (Fully subtitled) Official Web Site
