A United Kingdom“Britain’s dark colonial past is dragged out into the burning sunlight in this rousing true-life love story… When an African prince falls in love with a white English office girl in post-war London, their marriage causes political and tribal trauma in their respective countries. Prince Seretse Khama of Bechuanaland (now Botswana) meets Ruth Williams at a Missionary Society dance in 1947. After a whirlwind and touchingly portrayed romance, they marry and return to his homeland to take up their roles as future king and queen. However not only do their respective families reject the idea but establishment figures in both the fast-fading British Empire and tribal elders in Bechuanaland have grave reservations about the union… This is very much a true story and it reveals once again the intense racism and bigotry of the day as well as the desperation of British ruling classes as the sun finally sets on the empire…Worthiness doesn’t get in the way of a great yarn and Asante, who shot the movie in the original locations where these events took place, tells the story with a well-judged mix of humour, giddy love, and painful reality.”—Alan Corr, RTÉ (Ireland)
