In UK Cinemas Now! A United Kingdom

Having recently hosted a special preview with Bechdel Test Fest and source material author Susan Williams, BEV strongly encourages you to watch A United Kingdom, directed by Amma Asante (Belle, A Way of Life), which is now on theatrical release across the UK.

Set against the breathtaking backdrops of the African savannah and period London, A United Kingdom celebrates the inspiring real-life relationship between Seretse Khama, King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams, the London office worker he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the British and South African governments. This is the true story of a groundbreaking love, vividly brought to life on the big screen by stars David Oyelowo (Selma) and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl).
