A United Kingdom (12A)

Amma Asante | UK | 2016 | 111’

An epic love story based on extraordinary true events. In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, fell in love with London office worker Ruth Williams. Their marriage was opposed not only by their respective families but also by the British and South African governments. But Seretse and Ruth defied family, apartheid and Empire – their love triumphed over every obstacle flung in their path and in so doing they transformed the poorest country in Africa into one of its most peaceful and prosperous.
