Based on the true story of Caroline Mathilda, the English princess who married King Christian VII of Denmark in the early 1770s, A Royal Affair is a bold, sumptuous tale of illicit love and political passion on a sweeping, epic scale. Keen to be a dutiful wife and Queen, Caroline's hopes are soon dashed when she discovers the King's true madness. Turning away from the King she finds herself in the arms of the King's physician -- a radical libertarian -- with whom she embarks upon a passionate affair that would bring the kingdom to the brink of revolution. Winner of two Silver Bears at the Berlin Film Festival 2012 (Best Actor and Best Script) A Royal Affair is a stunningly powerful portrait of love, lust and betrayal, told here for the very first time.
