A UNITED KINGDOM is based on extraordinary true events. 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 challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighboring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana.

"Bolstered by real events and true emotion, A UNITED KINGDOM opts for genuine, hard-won feeling, and the film studiously backs off from cheesy moments or over-the-top revelations."
Kate Erbland - INDIEWIRE

"Oyelowo's Seretse can both deliver a barnburner of a speech and put a gentle world of meaning into a quiet "Thank you, my love"; Pike's Ruth wears her wide-open heart on her face."
Moira MacDonald - SEATTLE TIMES

"Vividly depicted by Oyelowo and Pike, the noble pair show that sometimes love and determination can make a difference."
Peter Keough - BOSTON GLOBE

"An interracial romance between a British clerk and African royalty highights a historical flashpoint and offers a primo acting showcase for Oyelowo and Pike. It's a defiant cry from the heart."
Peter Travers - ROLLING STONE
