I saw A Royal Affair [2012] yesterday. A really compelling story with excellent performances by the leads, most of whom aren't big names (but should be). It's a profound alternative to the "monarchy love-story" genre that caters largely to American vanity.

A Royal Affair (2012)

A Royal Affair - A young queen, who is married to an insane king, falls secretly in love with her physician - and together they start a revolution that changes a nation forever.

Masquerade haute couture and accessoire. Masquerades were events held by the Royal Court or the upper classes, much like a ball.
