Downers Grove - On Monday, February 4 at 7:30pm, After Hours Film Society will present The Guilty. The film is a dramatic crime thriller that will keep you at the edge of your seat. It will be presented at the Tivloli Theatre, 5021 Highland Ave., Downers Grove.
The Danish thriller was co-written and directed by Gustav Möller. It was presented at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival under the World Cinema Dramatic Competition section. It was then selected as the Danish entry for Best Foreign Language Film for the upcoming Academy Awards this February 24.
The following synopsis was provided by After Hours: "When police officer
Asger Holm is demoted to desk work, he expects a sleepy beat as an emergency
dispatcher. That all changes when he answers a panicked phone call from a
kidnapped woman who then disconnects abruptly. Asger, confined to the police
station, is forced to use others as his eyes and ears as the severity of the
crime slowly becomes more clear."
An American remake is already in production, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, so this is a great opportunity to see the original and discuss this first version afterwards. Hear from a critic from the Chicago Film Critics Association while you enjoy complimentary refreshments and a group discussion to follow the film. Visit afterhoursfilmsociety.com/the-guilty.html.
