The Hunt

Country of Origin:


​What's it about?

A teacher lives a lonely life, all the while struggling over his son’s custody. His life slowly gets better as he finds love and receives good news from his son, but his new luck is about to be brutally shattered by an innocent little lie.

Why do we love it?

An emotionally draining watch, The Hunt shows the power of words and more importantly why children should never be trusted. A shocking and heartbreaking film, a dramatic powerhouse and a tension filled slow burner.

Who's in it?
