The Hunt

A divorced teacher loses everything when a little girl makes a false allegation of child abuse against him.

What can I say? Unsettling and thought-provoking, this deals with very dark subject matter that won’t be to everyone’s taste. Mikkelsen is excellent as the accused, his frustration and hopelessness is totally believable, as is the wee little girl playing Klara (the accuser). In fact, the whole thing is very convincing and all the more disturbing for it.
