A United Kingdom is a movie based on the true story of the interracial love that shook the British establishment in Africa. The sweeping love was between the first president of Botswana, Sir Seretse Khama and the British woman he loved dearly, Ruth Williams.
The movie is a masterpiece set at a time when it was unthinkable for a black man to woo a white woman talk more of marrying her. The story is one of the greatest love stories in history, set against the end of the British Empire and the birth of independence in Africa.
The film was Directed by Amma Asante (Belle) and written by Guy Hibbert (Eye In The Sky). It’s based on the book Colour Bar by Susan Williams.
