A Royal Affair
A Royal Affair
When British-born Caroline Mathilde (Alicia Vikander) finds herself wed, at the ripe age of fifteen, to Christian VII, the slightly unhinged King of Denmark two years her senior, life at court seems to offer little chance of personal happiness.

When a German medic fuelled by the ideals of the Age of Enlightenment becomes the king's physician, the trajectory of the young queen's life, and of her adopted nation, are set on a revolutionary new course.

Mads Mikkelsen gives a galvanising performance as the Teutonic physician who becomes an insider at Denmark's Royal Court in the role for which he received the Best Actor award at the 2012 Berlin Film Festival.

"Mads Mikkelsen leads this outstanding period romp - the finest since Amadeus. With lashings of sex, politics and intrigue, it is essential viewing" - The Sunday Age
