In A United Kingdom, two luminous actors, David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike, bring to life one of the great forbidden romances of the 20th century. In the late 1940s, Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana caused an international stir when he married Ruth Williams, a white woman from London. Both sweeping and intimate, A United Kingdom illustrates how love can challenge the harshest constraints. ‘With terrific warmth and idealism – and irresistible storytelling relish – director Amma Asante gives us a romantic true story from our dowdy post-war past.’ (The Guardian)
