Historic period nicely done. Very well acted.

I wonder if Leo Tolstoy's Anna can beat, A Royal Affair.

Total Film
The stand-out, though, is Mikkel Boe Folsgaard as the King. Teetering on the edge of sanity, he is both detestable and sympathetic. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
A Royal Affair suffers from the richness of the historical material - there is so much going on here - and also, perhaps, from a patriotic desire to treat it reverently. Unfortunately it never fully comes to life. Full Review
Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine
The film is too tepid in its treatment of its central character and her situation to generate any real emotive charge. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
But even appreciated simply as a little-known chapter of European history, it proves consistently engrossing, edifying and affecting. Full Review
Anna Smith
A voluptuous slice of historical drama that will satisfy period fans and Mikkelsen admirers equally. Full Review
