A United Kingdom

Romance Biography Drama


 

The King of Bechuanaland, a British Protectorate in Africa, falls in love and marries a white English woman causing scandal in his home country and throughout England.

"A United Kingdom" is a love story that transcends race, prejudice and social injustice. The obstacles placed in our couple's path to happiness by government bureaucracy and familial issues make this heart-breaking true story hard to watch at times. Your faith in humanity will be tested during the surprisingly short run time of this film that has a heart of gold and is incredibly well balanced. Pops of humour lighten the mood exactly when needed and our leads play their parts to perfection. The power of love.
