A United Kingdom

Fri. 3/10 -Thurs. 3/23

(PG-13) 1 Hr. 56 Min. In English (Drama, Romance)

A United Kingdom is based on extraordinary true events. In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and 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 and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana. This beautifully told love story cuts across continents and tells a chapter of history few are aware of.

The two, who happen to be performers rehearsing for Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, rent a new apartment from one of their fellow performers, unaware of the fact that the previous tenant had been a woman of ill repute having many clients. By a nasty turn of events one of the clients pays a visit to the apartment one night while Ranaa is alone at home taking a bath and the aftermath turns the peaceful life of the couple upside down.
