This weekend may be filled with Jubilee celebrations, but when it’s over it doesn’t mean this royal obsession has to stop. Nikolaj Arcel’s A ROYAL AFFAIR is out at the beginning of June and here we have a quick clip to show you, taken from the film.
Mads Mikkelsen (THE THREE MUSKETEERS) stars as Johann Friedrich Struensee, a trustee and advisor to King Christian VII of Denmark (played by Mikkel Følsgaard). Christian is set to marry Caroline Mathilde (Alicia Vikander – ANNA KARENINA) but things get royally messy when Miss Caroline falls for Johann. The clip below shows us Caroline asking for some advice – and receiving a surprising answer.
The film competed at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival, where Følsgaard won the Silver Bear for Best Actor and the film won Best Script. With these award already behind it, could we expect more nominations after its release? Will you be going to see it? Let us know!
A ROYAL AFFAIR, directed by Nikolaj Arcel, has a UK release date of 15th June 2012.
