Foreign Film: A Royal Affair

A young queen, who is married to an insane king, falls secretly in love with her physician - and together they start a revolution that changes a nation forever. Up for an Academy Award in the Foreign Film category, Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr declares the film “a crowned-heads soap opera that balances effectively between pomp and melodramatic circumstance. In the bargain, it tells a startling real-life story of queenly bed-hopping, Enlightenment ideals, and Cabinet coups in the name of the people.” Monday through Friday, during normal business hours, you may call 901.544.6208 to purchase tickets by phone.
