A Royal Affair (En Kongelig Affaere)

Alicia Wikander (Danish Queen Caroline Mathilde), Mads Mikkelsen (the royal physician), and Mikkel Boe Følsgaard (King Christian VII) deliver outstanding performances in this romantic and tragic historically accurate drama. Directed by Nikolaj Arcel and set in the 18th century, the sets and costumes are not to be missed. A Royal Affair was well deserving of the Oscar nomination for best foreign film.
