A UNITED KINGDOM is an epic love story based on extraordinary true events. In 1947, Seretse Khama, the 26-year-old King of Botswana, fell in love with Ruth Williams, a London office worker.

Their marriage was opposed not only by their respective families but also by the British and South African governments. But Seretse and Ruth defied family, apartheid and Empire - their love triumphed over every obstacle flung in their path and in so doing they transformed their nation and inspired the world.

★★★★ The Guardian - 'This true-life romance between an English office clerk and the future king of Botswana is a beautifully shot, crowd-pleasing gem.'

★★★ Sky Cinema - 'Amma Asante's stirring period drama sheds welcome light on a love story for the ages.'
