Based on a true story, Period and Historical, Romance
A historical drama based on a true story well known in Denmark, but perhaps lesser known beyond its borders. In the 18th century, Denmark’s 15-year-old queen, Caroline Mathilde, had an affair with her doctor. Although very young, Caroline was well-read and wanted desperately for women to have more control over their lives. Complicating matters was the king’s delicate mental condition. The film powerfully dramatises how personal desire and public duty become entwined while also revealing the conflict between a new generation who challenged the dominance of the nobility.
This gripping biographical drama will wipe out memories of dull history lessons, with a spectacular performance from star Cate Blanchett at its heart.
