Following a tough divorce, 40-year-old Lucas is starting to pull his life back together again. He has a new girlfriend, a new job, and is in the process of re-establishing his relationship with his teenage son Marcus (Lasse Fogelstrøm). However one passing remark threatens Lucas's newfound stability. One of the children he looks after at the nursery where he works, a little girl with a vivid imagination, tells a random lie which is impossible to ignore. Her allegation spreads like a virus, quickly acquiring the veneer of truth the more it is told. As shock turns to mistrust and then malice, it doesn't take long before this small community is in a collective state of hysteria, igniting a witch-hunt that threatens to destroy an innocent man's life.
Directed by Thomas Vinterberg - co-founder of the Dogme movement and director of the award-winning international hit Festen - The Hunt won the Best Actor prize (Mads Mikkelsen), as well as the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury (Thomas Vinterberg) and the Vulcain Prize for Technical Artist (to Director of Photography Charlotte Bruus Christensen) at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it screened to critical acclaim In Competition.
