A United Kingdom

"My grandfather was a King - I am his heir. I have a responsibility to return home to my people, but I will never achieve anything worthwhile if I leave my heart here."

A UNITED KINGDOM tells the inspiring true story of Seretse Khama, the King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams, 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.

A 'love-conquers-all' tale of interracial marriage and international politics, A UNITED KINGDOM is an extraordinary story solidly based on historical events. This beautifully filmed biographical romantic drama stars Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Foyles War) and David Oyelowo (The Help, Selma).
