Meghan’s Pick: A Royal Affair

Okay, so technically A Royal Affair was released late last year, but because it wasn’t on my radar until recently (gif sets are popping up all over tumblr and it’s on Netflix instant), I’m counting it as my favorite film of 2013 so far. Imagine Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette if the young queen was an insanely smart socialist who decided to secretly take a lover and to secretly take over the country. This Danish film is gorgeous, heart wrenching and sexy — and based on a true story. — Meghan O’Keefe
