A United Kingdom

Opens Mar 10, 2017

A United Kingdom is the true story of the forbidden love of King Seretse Khama of Botswana (David Oyelowo) and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), 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.

"It's a tender love story that never goes soft on its provocations. It's a defiant cry from the heart."--Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
