A Royal Affair

Mads Mikkelsen and Alicia Vikander star in the Oscar-nominated tale of brave idealists who risk everything in their pursuit of freedom for the people. In the mid-18th century, English princess Caroline Mathilda is due to be married to King Christian VII of Denmark. Keen to be a dutiful wife and Queen, Caroline’s hopes are soon dashed when she discovers the King’s true madness - but then she finds herself enraptured by the King’s physician who also happens to be a radical libertarian. They embark upon a passionate love affair that would not only shake their own lives but bring the kingdom to the brink of revolution.
