REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the movie takes an unexpected direction after the affair begins..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]
“..while it's lavish and lush in all the expected costume-drama ways, A Royal Affair never bogs down in period detail..”
by Ella Taylor [NPR]
“..the film stretches credibility and historical fact in suggesting that she was the driving force behind the enlightened reforms of the short-lived "Struensee era."..”
by Alissa Simon [Variety]
