Crime and punishment themes feature in movies being shown at Derby’s arts centre Quad during January.
The Hunt is a Scandinavian offering. This Danish film was the winner of the Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year for the moving central performance from Mads Mikkelsen.
A divorced teacher (Mikkelsen) lives a solitary life while fighting for custody of his son. His life is slowly getting better, thanks to a new girlfriend and some good news from his son but that is about to be shattered by an innocent little lie. The director is Thomas Vinterberg.
