A United Kingdom
Amma Asante follows Belle with another little-documented true story from our colonial past. When office worker Ruth Williams meets Seretse Khama, King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana) at a London party in 1947, the connection is instantaneous. Against fierce opposition, they marry and plan to relocate to Africa, causing an international diplomatic crisis as their respective governments conspire to drive them apart. Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo bring great chemistry to this inspiring and richly crafted story of a love that transcends boundaries.
