A true tale of love and revolution...

A TRUE story of an ordinary man, who wins the Queen's heart and starts a revolution, will be screened at the Bahrain Cinema Club in Juffair at 7pm tonight.

The historical drama A Royal Affair is set in 1767, when the British princess Caroline is betrothed to the mad king Christian VII of Denmark, but her life with the erratic monarch in the oppressive country becomes an isolating misery.

However, Christian gains the companionship with the German Dr Johann Struensee, an idealistic man of the Enlightenment.

As the only one who can influence the king, Struensee is able to begin enlightened reforms of Denmark through Christian even as Caroline falls for the doctor.

However, their secret affair proves a tragic mistake that their conservative enemies use to their advantage in a conflict that threatens to claim more than just the lovers as their victims.

The film, directed by Nikolaj Arcel, won the Silver Bear Awards for Best Actor and Best Script and was nominated for the Golden Bear Award. It was also nominated for the Oscar Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

The film's cast includes Alicia Vikander, Mads Mikkelsen and Mikkel Boe FAlsgrd. Call Huda Tabbara on 39682323 for details.
