Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars, “The Hunt” is essential viewing that will make you laugh, cry, and rage with uncontrollable fury all at once. When a beloved kindergarten teacher is falsely accused of an unspeakable crime, his simple life is shattered. Rumors become insinuations, insinuations become fact, and he is shunned by friends and family. The incredible intensity of the great Mads Mikkelsen (TV’s “Hannibal;” “A Royal Affair,” TCFF ’12), the man at the center of this devastating witch-hunt, makes the chilling tale of mob mentality and hysteria the kind of gripping storytelling you just can’t shake. As riveting as any thriller, director Thomas Vinterberg’s film will draw you in and take you down a road that is anything but expected.
The screening on 7/31 at 3 pm will be followed by a Cinema Salon session in Clinch Park
