'A Royal Affair': Sneak Peek at Denmark's Oscar Entry (Exclusive Video)
The film, a period piece costume drama based on a real Danish 18th-century royal love triangle, stars Danish heartthrob Mads Mikkelsen, among others.
The Hollywood Reporter is pleased to exclusively debut the first clip that has been released of Nikolaj Arcel's A Royal Affair, which Denmark has submitted as its entry for this year's best foreign language film Oscar.
The film, a period piece costume drama based on a real Danish 18th-century royal love triangle, premiered at Berlin (where it was awarded the prizes for best screenplay, for Arcel, and best actor, for star Folsgaard), and then went to Telluride and Toronto (where it received a standing ovation) -- the same initial course that was followed by last year's eventual winner of the best foreign language film Oscar, Iran's A Separation.
A Royal Affair stars Mikkel Boe Folsgaard, Alicia Vikander, and Mads Mikkelsen. Arcel was heretofore best known for adapting The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books for the recent Swedish film trilogy.
Magnolia Picturess will give the film a limited U.S. release beginning on Nov. 9.
