The Wild Hunt: When Fantasy Meets Reality

Montreal Gazette claims "When The Lord of the Rings trades punches with Lord of the Flies, you get a film called The Wild Hunt."
The Wild Hunt is not a typical Sword, Sandal or Sorcery movie. It follows the story of medieval role players whose epic battle gets interrupted by reality. The award winning movie is slowly gaining national distribution in indie houses and smaller theaters after hitting the festival circuit.

Here is the official synopsis:
A MODERN MEDIEVAL SAGA, The Wild Hunt tells the story of Erik Magnusson, a young man who decides to follow his estranged girlfriend Evelyn into a medieval re-enactment game when he discovers that she has been seduced by one of the players.

As the down-to-earth Erik treks deeper into the game in search of his love, he inadvertently disrupts the delicate balance of the make believe fantasy-land.

Passions are unleashed. Rules are broken. Reality and fantasy collide. The good-hearted game turns into a tragedy of mythic proportion...

Capturing the culture of costume play and the potentially dangerous intersection of real and made-up worlds, The Wild Hunt is a timely and potent comment on the consuming nature of adopting another identity, even within a game, and the modern yearning for ritual.

It definitely looks worth checking out. WARNING: Mature language in the trailer.
