Denmark 2012, 137 min, drama. Danish with English subtitles.
Director: Nikolaj Arcel
This sensational Academy-award-nominated film recounts a famous royal scandal: the illicit romance between Danish Queen Caroline Mathilde (Alicia Vikander) and royal physician Johan Friedrich Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen).In early 1770s Copenhagen, Struensee finds a kindred progressive spirit in the young Queen, and together they persuade charming—if noticeably unhinged—King Christian (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard) to embark on a bold reform agenda. When mutual admiration turns to something racier, the pompous courtiers start sharpening their knives.
A discerning and beautifully filmed true story, with the shape and bite of well-crafted fiction, and political themes every bit as stirring as the romance.
A Royal Affair: A mad king, a sex-starved queen, a Danish delight. Review in The Globe and Mail by Liam Lacey, February 2013.
Movie review: A Royal Affair, by Katherine Monk, PostMedia News, January 2013.
