A breakthrough role of Swedish actress Alicia Vikander was in the Danish historical drama A Royal Affair (En Kongelig Affaere). She plays the English princess Caroline Matilda, who married the Danish King Christian VII in 1766. He had a mental illness. Mads Mikkelsen plays the German doctor Struensee, who had progressive ideas influenced by the Enlightenment. It's a good mix of romance, history and beautiful interiors.

In the Mexican drama After Lucia (Despues de Lucía) a man moves to Mexico City after his wife Lucia has died in a car crash. His daughter goes to a new school, where she becomes a victim of cyberbullying. Some of the scenes are filmed by a static camera on the back seat of a car, which gives an unusual point of view.
