The Celebration (Danish title: Festen) (1998) is an acclaimed Danish film, written and directed by Thomas Vinterberg, about the eldest son who decides he can no longer keep silent about his father's past transgressions. The film tells the story of a family gathering to celebrate their father's 60th birthday. At the birthday dinner, his eldest son publicly accuses him of sexually abusing and raping both him and his twin sister (who had just recently committed suicide).
