TNB BHM 2016 presents Shakespeare in Black & White featuring...
A UNITED KINGDOM
Thursday 06 October 2016
Introduction by David Oyelowo (TBC)
A United Kingdom is a powerful testament to the defiant and enduring love story of Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo), King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana) and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), the London office worker he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the government of the time. Director Amma Asante follows her previous film Belle with another elegant, impassioned drama that also reveals a painful episode in the history of British race relations and imperial politics.
Director: Amma Asante
Running time: 105 mins (12A)
