The storytelling in A Royal Affair is traditional bordering on square. But the historical drama itself — about how an idealistic German doctor influenced a silly king, romanced a queen, and brought the Age of Enlightenment to 18th-century Denmark — is kind of amazing. Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina) is lovely as the lonely teenage sister of England’s King George III, married off to a Danish royal idiot. International star Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) is a little lugubrious for a doctor so politically (and romantically) passionate. B
