“The King’s Choice” is a dramatic rendition of a true, historic story of three intense, pressured, and dangerous April days in 1940, during which the previously ceremonial King needs to decide sovereign Norway’s future, given an ultimatum by Nazi Germany to surrender or die. The impressive courage of the Norwegian King and countrymen, then and throughout World War II, was and is exemplary, eye-opening, and inspirational. This little known event understandably makes a huge impact on movie viewers! Join us as we vicariously experience this event together.
