A Royal Affair

A Royal Affair (2012)

A young woman leaves her native England to travel to Denmark and become the Queen to a young prince.  Told that he is handsome and smart, she finds that he is unstable and demanding and she is trapped in a loveless marriage.

The arrival of a new physician leads to a secret love affair, which they try to hide from the court.  Leading social changes across Denmark, the stepmother and her cronies become suspicious, and the affair is about to be revealed.

A lovely movie, although the Danish language and a warm cinema almost lulled me to sleep in the first half hour, however the story was great and I enjoyed the lovely visuals, both the scenery and the amazing costumes.

A great winters evenings watch 4/5.
