Thomas Vinterberg's best film since Festen"" is an unsettling psychological drama built around a harrowing performance from Mads Mikkelsen.""
-David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
It is rare that a film can make you laugh, cry and shake with fury all at the same time; even rarer when it does so for the right reasons.

Synopsis

Following a tough divorce, 40 year-old Lucas has a new girlfriend, a new job and is in the process of reestablishing his relationship with his teenage son, Marcus. But things go awry. Not a lot. Just a small comment. A random lie. And as the snow falls and the Christmas lights are lit, the lie spreads like an invisible virus. The shock and mistrust gets out of hand, and the small community suddenly finds itself in a collective state of hysteria, while Lucas fights a lonely fight for his life and dignity.
