The story of Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana who marries a white woman from London in the late 1940s, I'm going to let the trailer speak for itself. It's that powerful. A United Kingdom is set to debut at the Toronto Film Festival on September 9th, another screening at the London Film Festival on October 5th, with a wide release in the UK on November 25th. US?
Mark this down in the PLUS column for women in film. A United Kingdom is directed by Amma Assante, the female director who gave us Belle. Playing in theatres now, A United Kingdom is on my must see list.
Are you planning on seeing A United Kingdom?
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
