A new trailer for Amma Asante’s A United Kingdom starring David Oyelowo and Rosemund Pike has been released. The film came out in November in the UK, but is set to receive its North American release on February 17th. You can check out our exclusive interviews with Oyelowo and Asante here and our review of the film here.
A UNITED KINGDOM tells the inspiring true story of Seretse Khama, the king of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams, the London office worker that he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the British and South African governments. 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.
A United Kingdom is set for release on February 17th in the States.
