This Oscar-nominated costume drama tells the lavish true story of the forbidden romance that changed a nation. With the Age of Enlightenment just dawning in Denmark in the 18th century, the country is under the rule of a mad king and his new teenage bride from the British Isles. The young queen falls passionately for German philosopher and physician Johann Struensee, who was called to the king’s court to see to his mental illness. The queen and the doctor share a passionate romance and a bond over their commonly held progressive ideals as they defy the throne to push Denmark into modernity and change the country for the better.
