A Royal Affair (2012)

Nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Foreign Language Film category, this critically acclaimed Danish/Swedish film has so far been unable to pass unnoticed in any country. The engrossing story of a young Princess, Caroline Mathilda (Alicia Vikander) travelling from England to Denmark to marry his majesty Christian VII (Mikkel Boe Folsgaard) is bound to appeal just on the basis of its simplicity, a sense of adventure and romanticism. Although from her childhood years the young Princess often dreamt of her magical encounter with the Prince, in the end everything turns out far from what she had expected. With the King perceived as ‘weak in the head’ and completely childish, Caroline soon becomes infatuated with his right-hand man, a mysterious and liberal-thinking German physician, Johann Friedrich Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen).
