Let World-Herald film critic Bob Fischbach catch you up to speed with a couple new flicks in the theater.
A Royal Affair (R) In 1860s Denmark, slightly mad King Christian VII (Mikkel Boe Folsgaard) is cruel to his new wife, bullied by his court council. His new physician (Mads Mikkelsen, “Casino Royale”) nudges him to enact reforms, but also beds the queen. A strong costume drama of court intrigue. Subtitled, Oscar nominee. Sexual content, violence. For mature teens only. 3 stars.
