David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike star in the powerful new drama from British director Amma Asante (Belle), based on an extraordinary true story. In 1947, the King of Bechuanaland (Oyelowo) falls in love with a British office worker (Pike). Their controversial union generates fierce opposition from the British and South African governments as well as their families – but Seretse and Ruth defy family, apartheid and Empire to stay together. Exploring the intersect between a particular story and its universal affect, A United Kingdom charts a complex and painful chapter in Britain’s social history.
