It’s been a long time since our last caption competition, so when our friends over at Metrodome offered us 3 copies of the critically acclaimed Danish period drama A Royal Affair to give away, we thought it seemed a great opportunity to give something back to our readers. Details of how to enter are below, but first here’s more on the film from it’s press release:

The most dramatic love story in Danish history is the affair between King Christian VII’s physician, Johan Struensee, and the English born queen of Denmark, Caroline Mathilda in the early 1770’s. During the past 40 years, several screen adaptations of this emotional chapter in Danish history have been on the drawing board, but it isn’t until now, with Nikolaj Arcel’s A Royal Affair, that a Danish feature film about one of the country’s most fascinating dramas reaches the silver screen.

Starring Mads Mikkelsen and Alicia Vikander A Royal Affair is directed by Nikolaj Arcel, who is behind award-winning features such as King’s Game (2004) and The Island of Lost Souls (2007). Lately Arcel was nominated for the most prestigious film prize in Scandinavia, The Nordic Film Council Prize, for his dramacomedy Truth About Men (2010). Arcel also wrote the screenplay for Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – an accomplishment for which he earned a BAFTA nomination (2011).
