Great acting. Believable characters. Makes me think about the permanent effects people who've been publicly shamed must endure.
Such a heartbreaking story with superb acting. One that makes you think about it for days and days. Don't let this one pass you by, folks!
Mads Mikkelsen gives us an understated performance as a kindergarten teacher whose life is ruined by a small lie
This would be anyone's worst nightmare, much scarier than a horror. Not a pleasant experience but very good movie
Powerful acting. Brutally truthful take on society. Must watch!
Such a great movie, beautiful and scary in any way
This is a very uncomfortable movie to watch at times, but it needs to be. Mads Mikkelsen at his peak! This is a movie worthy of viewing.
You cannot help but feel angry at the injustice brought about by a little lie that spirals out of control.
A great film that will tense your buttocks and piss you the fuck off.
Powerful. Makes you question your own perspectives.
