    Joaquin Phoenix! He pulled it off. This isn’t like any other superhero film you’ve seen. It isn’t really about a villain either.

    Danish director, Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration), delivers a powerful and emotionally draining drama that will leave audiences hooked and feeling enraged for what Mads Mikelssen's character goes through in his closely-knit community. It's a film that will resonate with you and stay on your mind long after it's over. Building on Mikelssen's powerful…
