Village 8 Louisville Exclusives presents 'A Royal Affair'
Print this page

There was a big royal wedding earlier this year. It was this year, right? Maybe it was late last year. I also don't know who got married. Someone in England. One of the princes? I didn't pay attention. Clearly. It's the same old celebrity hype, just with a royal twist, and I don't feel the need to pay any mind to any of that crap. They got married – good for them! I hope they're very happy – well, I don't actively hope so, because, as I said, I don't care, but it's generally for the best if marital unions go well. I suppose. I could go on and on about that one. Marriage. This is not the appropriate platform for all the things I want to say. I've got a train of thought going here, and it's not very succinct journalism/blogging, so perhaps I should signal the conductor, Cletus Flannigan, to pull the ol' steam engine back into the station.

We are here to talk about the newest installment of the Village 8 Louisville Exclusives series, bringing art, foreign, and limited-release films to Louisville for the hungry cinephile. The film in question? A Royal Affair

(entitled

En Kongelig Affaere

in the original language). It's about a royal affair. Specifically, Caroline Mathilde's affair with the doctor Johann Friedrich Struenesee. This is a true story, and it occurred in the

18

th

century when Christian VII was the king of Denmark. He was mentally ill, and Caroline Mathilde was his queen. She fell in love with Struenesee and together they led a revolution. It was a pretty big deal – this is the second movie made about the event!

A Royal Affair

is scheduled to play at Village 8 Theaters until this Thursday, December 13, but this is subject to extension. Village 8 is located at 4014 Dutchmans Lane. Further theater information and showtimes can be found at the Village 8 website.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
