This is the tragic story of Danish King Christian VII and his English wife, Caroline.  The King was a cruel dolt who made his wife miserable, until she fell in love with his wise and tender doctor.  They both believed in modernizing the country and helping the people, especially the serfs.

What a stunning movie this is.  The script is riveting, the actors are uniformly excellent, and the costumes and sets are lavish. It made me want to read the factual story.

The movie, in Danish with subtitles, was nominated for a Best Foreign Film Oscar.  Mads Mikkelsen, the charismatic actor who plays the doctor, is currently playing Hannibal Lecter in the TV series, "Hannibal."  Based on his work in this movie, I'll be tuning in to see him on the small screen.



Great movie

I wanted to see this one when it ran in theatres, but it only played at the arthouses that are a bit far to drive so I couldn't work it into my schedule.
