‘The Guilty’ returns

The Guilty (4 stars on 0-5 scale) is back for a limited time at the Enzian Theater in Maitland, Florida. If you’re not in Central Florida, look for it at other arthouse cinemas around the country. It was the best film I saw at the Florida Film Festival back in April, when I said the following:

Combining Sorry, Wrong Number’s radio-drama appeal and Locke’s claustrophobic tension, The Guilty might be the best film of this year’s festival. This compelling, twisty Danish thriller is helmed by first-timer Gustav Möller and stars Jakob Cedergren as a police officer in an emergency call center. Relying on one simple set, a stunning and sympathetic performance by Cedergren, a well-crafted and socially relevant story, and the audience’s own imagination, The Guilty is the story of a flawed man desperate to save the life of a person he doesn’t know and, by doing so, prove his own worth.
