It’s the boys club and the girls club. Sweet, confused, noisy girls with their mind games. Noisy, equally confused, boys with their brawls. Maybe it has been like that since the beginning of time.
The movie is called The Hunt but it’s not an action movie. It’s a very intelligent drama that brushes on with complicated subjects such as bitter divorce, sexual harassment, and very troublesome misunderstandings. One slip of the tongue, a single unintentionally wrong gesture, and it destroys all its tragic victims. Friends. Best friends. Families. Not only children, adults too. Everybody. Everything.

My Rating: 9/10
