Amma Asante / USA/UK/Czech Republic 2016 / 1h51m / 12A – Contains racist language, moderate violence. Cast: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Tom Felton, Laura Carmichael, Jack Davenport. Based on extraordinary true events, A United Kingdom is a high-stakes love story that pits the bond between two people against the politicking and intolerance of two governments. In 1947, Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo), King of Botswana, meets Londoner Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), and the pair fall in love. Their proposed marriage is challenged not only by their families, but by the British and South African governments, the latter having recently introduced the policy of apartheid. Oyelowo and Pike shine in this stirring film, directed by BAFTA winner Amma Asante (Belle).
