Magnolia Pictures has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray Danish director Nikolaj Arcel's A Royal Affair (2012), starring Alicia Vikander, Mads Mikkelsen and Mikkel Boe Følsgaard. The preliminary release date set by the studio is March 26th.
Earlier this year, A Royal Affair won Best Actor (Mads Mikkelsen) and Best Screenplay Awards (Rasmus Heisterberg and Nikolaj Arcel) at the Berlin International Film Festival. The film was also selected to represent Denmark at this year's Oscar Awards.
Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, screenwriter of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the film is an epic romance about the love triangle between a German doctor, the queen of Denmark, and her deranged king. The film was produced by Louise Vesth, Meta Louise Foldager (Melancholia) and Sisse Graum Jørgensen (In a Better World) for Zentropa Entertainments.
