Starring Alicia Vikander (Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch) and Mads Mikkelsen, A ROYAL AFFAIR brings to life the 18th century royal love triangle between Princess Caroline Matilda of Great Britain, mad King Christian VI of Denmark, and Johann Struensee, the King’s personal doctor and chief advisor. Caroline remains alienated and depressed since she married the cruel King at 15, but when her husband returns from Germany with a new confidante, she is soon taken with Johann’s shared enlightenment ideals. Bringing reform to feudal Denmark, they upset the ruling aristocrats in this sumptuous, engrossing period drama.
