A United Kingdom is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Today, the trailer was released looking back at the historical drama featuring David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike.
A United Kingdom is based on real life extraordinary events. In the 40’s, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were attracted to each other immediately. She was taken by his pursuit of creating a better world, he was set aback by her willingness to embrace him and more importantly, change. During their proposed marriage, there were objections and not only by their families, but also by their governments. Despite the objections, they never gave in to the pressures to separate.
During the times we live in, it’s almost as if some of these movies are getting made/released at a perfect time!
A United Kingdom hits theaters in the United Kingdom on November 25th!
