The Hunt is a 2012 Danish film drama directed by Thomas Vinterberg and starring Mads Mikkelsen as as Lucas. The website for the film says that “Mads Mikkelsen plays Lucas, a highly-regarded school teacher who has been forced to start over having overcome a tough divorce. Just as things are starting to go his way, his life is shattered. An untruthful remark throws the small community into a collective state of hysteria. The lie is spreading and Lucas is forced to fight a lonely fight for his life and dignity.”
