A Royal Affair. Click image to view this movie’s IMDB page.

In the late eighteenth century, Denmark is ruled by the spoiled King Christian VII (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard), for whom governing takes a backseat to playing with his dog and indulging in all the pleasures of the flesh — which makes him susceptible to the designs of cunning courtiers.

Enter Johann Struensee (Mikkelsen), a handsome German doctor and proponent of the Enlightenment’s reformist principles, invited to come to Copenhagen as his personal physician. There, Struensee discovers his political match in the king’s captivating queen, CarolineMathilde (Alicia Vikander, Anna Karenina), who happens to be somewhat starved for attention.

134 minutes, English and Danish with English subtitles.
