Director: Amma Asante.

Starring: Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo. UK 2016. 111 mins.




Former child actor turned director Amma Asante’s follow-up to her acclaimed 2013 feature Belle is another real-life story based on a love affair that defied class divisions, racial bias and social conventions. David Oyelowo plays Seretse Khama, King of Bechuanaland (now Botswana), whose relationship with London office worker Ruth Williams (Pike) caused an international stir in the 1940s. Adapted by Guy Hibbert from Susan Williams’s 2007 biography Colour Bar: The Triumph of Seretse Khama And His Nation, Asante’s latest offering makes great use of its two main locations, England and Botswana. Celebrating the triumph of love and intelligence in the face of oppression and intolerance, A United Kingdom reveals a complex and painful period of British history. It also confirms Asante as one of the most important voices in British cinema.
