111 min. in English.,,,Directed by: Amma Asante

Starring: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Jack Davenport

Rated: PG-13

Based on the extraordinary, true events of the King of Botswana and his relationship with a white London office worker. When the couple marries, they are challenged by their families and the British and South African governments. Set in 1947, right after South Africa had introduced the policy of apartheid, the governments found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighboring country intolerable. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold.

"A fact-based political romance about one of the most remarkable love stories you've never heard about." ~ Philadelphia Inquirer
