SUMMARY: A United Kingdom is the true story of the forbidden love of King Seretse
Khama of Botswana (David Oyelowo, Selma) and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike,
Gone Girl/Pride & Prejudice), a white woman from London, which caused an
international uproar when they decided to marry in the late 1940s just as apartheid
was being introduced into South Africa.
It was a decision that altered the course of African history. Directed by
Amma Asante (Belle) and written by Guy Hibbert (Eye in the Sky), A United Kingdom
also stars Jack Davenport, Laura Carmichael, Terry Pheto, Jessica Oyelowo,
Arnold Oceng and Anastasia Hille.
Critics Consensus: Well-acted, solidly crafted, and all-around worthy, A United Kingdom
presents an absorbing look at a singular true-life love story.
