A rich, intelligent & inspiring love story based on extraordinary true events, from British director Amma Asante (Belle, A Way of Life).In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challlenged not only by their families, but also by the British & South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid & found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighbouring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium & gold & face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana…David Oyelowo (Selma, Nightingale) & Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) star as the fearless couple, delivering strong, stirring performances that capture the courage & romance that defined the characters they play.Asante’s confident direction, coupled with a solid script from TV veteran Guy Hibbert resulted in a moving, elegant melodrama complemented by the stunning African plains & wildlife.
David Oyelowo & Rosamund Pike star in this romantic drama based on the true story of an African prince who fell in love with a white British woman in the 1940s. While studying in England, Prince Seretse Khama (Oyelowo) meets Ruth Williams (Pike), a beautiful young woman who immediately steals his heart. As the two begin a highly controversial love affair, they battle every day against prejudice & hate, hoping that their love will keep them together. When the time comes for Seretse to go home to take his place on the throne of Bechuanaland, he refuses to leave without Ruth & so the two marry & return as husband & wife. With British government official Alistair Canning (Jack Davenport) threatening Ruth with the knowledge that her marriage could cause the downfalll of the British Empire in Africa, the couple do everything they can to convince the world that they can be an interracial couple & still successfully lead a country.
