A Royal Affair is Denmark’s submission for the best foreign language film consideration at this year’s Academy Awards. Based on historical events, it stars the great Mads Mikkelsen as a doctor who has an affair with the Danish queen. She’s primed for the affair because her husband, Christian VII, is clearly off his rocker. What happens as a result of the affair has a long-lasting effect on Denmark.
Intrigued? The movie comes out on Friday, but there is an advance screening on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. If you want to go, all you have to do is print out this pass and get there early since it’s first come, first served.
