A United Kingdom

British filmmaker Amma Asante (Belle) impressively crafts a beguiling romantic drama that features convincing chemistry between UK actors David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike. With support from British acting talent Jack Davenport and Tom Felton, and a smart and heartfelt screenplay by Oxford-born Guy Hibbert.





Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo), the Prince of Bechuanaland (modern-day Botswana), shocks the world when he marries Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), a white British woman, in the 1940s. After a negative reception in the Prince’s homeland, the two must navigate hostility both there and in London, as they resolve to triumph over prejudice.
