  • Conclusion: Nikolaj Arcel's 'A Royal Affair is a must see. It features some of the most beautiful filmmaking in a long, long time, and Mads Mikkelsen gives one hell of a performance.

  • Summary: It may be exec-produced by Lars von Trier, but this ain’t no experimental Dogme art-house fare. Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, A Royal Affair is first-rate historical drama, let down by an unduly lengthy runtime. More Set in the 18th century Danish court, the right royal affair in question is the illicit romance between the Danish King’s English-born Queen Caroline Mathilde and German-born royal physician Johann Struensee.
