King Haakon VII’s refusal to comply with the demands of the Nazis during the invasion of Norway is one of the main reasons for the enduring popular embrace of the Norwegian monarchy. In THE KING’S CHOICE director Erik Poppe tells the story of the King’s perilous escape from the invading German forces – with the fate of the nation hanging in the balance. Featuring Danish actor Jesper Christensen as Haakon VII and Anders Baasmo Christiansen as crown prince Olav, this grand historical drama brings to life one of the key events in modern Norwegian history.
