The Hunt was a study in cruel suspicion in which a small-town schoolteacher's life and reputation are destroyed by the innocent lie of a child, and Vinterberg tills similar soil in his adaptation of Thomas Hardy's 1874 serial Far from the Madding Crowd , creating another small-town hothouse where propriety is challenged and everyone exists on the razor's edge of fate.
