Nominated for an Academy Award, A Royal Affair is an epic romance about the scandalous love triangle between a Queen, her German doctor (Mads Mikkelsen), and the mad King of Denmark. Drawn together in the pursuit of freedom for their people, their high-flown idealism is undone by blind passion in this notorious true story of illicit love and political intrigue.
