The first half of Langley’s independent film nights 2013-14 season concludes on Wednesday, Nov. 13 with a screening of The Hunt.

The R-rated Danish film stars Mads Mikkelson and is directed by Thomas Vinterberg.

Mikkelsen won the Best Actor award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival for his penetrating portrayal of Lucas, a former school teacher who has been forced to start over having overcome a tough divorce and the loss of his job.

Just as things are starting to go his way, his life is shattered when an untruthful remark throws his small community into a collective state of hysteria.

As the lie spreads, Lucas is forced to fight a lonely fight for his life and dignity.

Tickets at the door $10; cash or cheque only.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at Colossus cinema at 200 Street, near 88 Avenue.
