‘A rousing historic drama.’
A nation’s fate in one’s hands.
A tense and inspiring tale from the early years of the Second World War, and the number one film of 2016 in its home country. It is April 1940, and Norway, a neutral nation, is unprepared for the threat of Nazi Germany’s advance across Europe. Faced with an attempted coup from collaborator Vidkun Quisling, elderly King Haakon is faced with a choice – should he recognise Quisling as Prime Minister to prevent bloodshed, or abdicate to inspire Norway’s resistance? With its vast, highly-charged battles and stealthy political games, The King’s Choice is a full-blooded epic, and a gripping account of history at a turning point.
