A UNITED KINGDOM tells the inspiring true story of Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo), the King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), the London office worker he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the British and South African governments.
Seretse and Ruth defied family, Apartheid and empire - their love triumphed over every obstacle flung in their path and in so doing they transformed their nation and inspired the world.
"Mr. Oyelowo, one of the best actors working today onstage or onscreen, imbues his portrayal of Seretse with a disarming delicacy and vulnerability that make the strengths he is later forced to show all the more convincing. It is remarkable, genuinely riveting work." Glenn Kenny. A New York Times Critics' Pick!
