Based on extraordinary true events, Erik Poppe's superbly-realised box office hit is an absorbing story of morality and honour set during a pivotal moment in World War II, when an unprepared Norway was invaded by German forces and their monarch presented with a terrible ultimatum. With spectacular production design on a scale that rivals the seminal war dramas of Spielberg and Boorman, The King's Choice is a commanding, full-blooded epic. Brilliantly depicting the machinations, principles and personal fallout of conflict, it's a gripping and resonant account of history at a turning point, told from a previously undepicted perspective. 2016 Paradox/Nordisk Film Production/Film Väst/Zentropa Sweden/Copenhagen Film Fund/Newgrange Pictures.
