We will be going to the 8 pm showing of A Royal Affair at the Harvard Exit Theatre. The film stars Mads Mikkelsen (the villain from Casino Royale) as Johann Friedrich Struensee, a man of the Enlightenment and the royal physician to King Christian VII (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard), the crazed king of Denmark, and the love triangle that exists between the physician, the king, and his young queen (Alicia Vikander). Based on a true story, the film is directed by Nikolaj Arcel, the screenwriter of the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Run time is 2 hours and 17 minutes with English subtitles. Rated R for sexual content and some violent images.
Buy your ticket, and then meet us in the lobby between 7:30 and 7:45. At around 7:50, we will head into the theater.
Once the movie is over, we will meet back in the lobby, allowing time for people to use the restrooms, before heading over to DeLuxe Bar and Grill for their Happy Hour and our post-movie discussion.
Here is Roger Ebert's 3 1/2 star review of the film: http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20121107/REVIEWS/121109985
Also, for those of you who have to work early the next day, I hope you can at least spend a few minutes discussing the film with us in the lobby.
Hope to see everyone there!
