“A sensational period drama” The Daily Telegraph
This stunning film is set in eighteenth century Denmark at the court of mentally unstable King Christian VII. His new young queen, falls secretly in love with her physician – and together they start a revolution that changes a nation forever.
Mads Mikkelsen, the Danish actor who was such a vivid presence in Susanne Bier’s After the Wedding, gives a marvelous performance in A Royal Affair. … Nicolaj Arcel’s period piece, which is superbly entertaining and sumptuously produced, combines seminal Danish history with juicy scandal.” Wall Street Journal
