United Kingdom (12A)

BBC Films directed by Amma Asante (111 minutes)

United Kingdom was one of those films that I watched without having to look at my watch once. David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike star in a bittersweet romantic film set against the backdrop of intercontinental political relations in the immediate post-war years.

The film is based on the true story of the heir to the throne of what has become Botswana marrying an ordinary white woman from Britain. This is a gripping story, well told, of the path of true love not running smoothly, until … well that would be telling.

Get some chocolate and tissues and go and see for yourself; you will not be disappointed.
