A Royal Affair

2h 17m Drama, History, Romance 2012

Alicia Vikander and Mads Mikkelsen star in this costume drama about the love triangle between a young queen, her ill husband, and the court physician

A ROYAL AFFAIR is the true story of an ordinary man who wins the queen’s heart and starts a revolution. Centering on the intriguing love triangle between the ever more insane Danish King Christian VII (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard), the royal physician who is a man of enlightenment and idealism Johann Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen) and the young but strong Queen Caroline Mathilde (Alicia Vikander), A Royal Affair is the gripping tale of brave idealists who risk everything in the pursuit of freedom for their people, and of the passionate and forbidden romance that changed an entire nation. A ROYAL AFFAIR snagged both Golden Globe and Academy Award noms when it was released, yet flew largely under the radar.
