Denmark, 1760s. German doctor Johann Struensee (Mikkelsen) is taken on to attend to the questionable sanity of the erratic King Christian. The German's eye is quickly caught by the king's beautiful wife, Queen Caroline (Vikander), and the two fall into an affair that threatens to consume them both.
A voluptuous slice of historical drama that will satisfy period fans and Mikkelsen admirers equally.
