CINEMATIC BREAKFAST: A UNITED KINGDOM
The inspiring true love affair between African King Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams, the London office worker.
Addressing a world that is still (even after the precedent set by the presidency of Barack Obama) increasingly afflicted by institutionalised racism and all manner of bigotries, A United Kingdom looks back to mid-20th-century history to create a love-conquers-almost-all tale of interracial marriage and international politics.
COMPLIMENTARY TEA, COFFEE AND CROISSANTS
“Amma Asante brings out more British colonial skeletons, and dusts off the woman’s picture, with this retelling of the post-war, inter-continental love story between Seretse Khama and Ruth Williams.”
