The Guilty (15)

Fri 24th May 2019
Players Theatre, Hurstpierpoint, BN6 9pu

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. 

The search to find the missing woman and her assailant will take every bit of his intuition and skill, as a ticking clock and his own personal demons conspire against him. This innovative and unrelenting Danish thriller uses a single location to great effect, ratcheting up the tension as twists pile up and secrets are revealed.

A consummately riveting Danish thriller, The Guilty puts you on hold, then puts you in a hold. It won't be letting go until its short, sharp and nerve-shredding 80 minutes are up.
