The Macon Film Guild presents “The Guilty” Sunday as its first film of 2019. It’s a Danish thriller reviewers praise with words like “intense” and “taunt.”
“Besides being quite a thriller, ‘The Guilty’ is an intense character study of a flawed person,” said Robert Fieldsteel, Film Guild president. “It won the Audience Award in World Cinema at the Sundance Film Festival and was selected as Denmark’s official Oscar entry for best foreign language film. It’s amazing that the director, Gustav Moller, was just a year out of film school when he co-wrote and made this daring film which has become an international hit.”
“The Guilty” centers on a Danish policeman, played by Jakob Cedergren, demoted to an emergency dispatch center who takes a call from a woman saying she’s been kidnapped. After that, everything happens onscreen in one location: virtually all you see and hear is right there with the officer on the phone.
