A United Kingdom is based on the true story of the sweeping interracial love that shook the British establishment between the first president of Botswana, Sir Seretse Khama and the British woman he loved, Ruth Williams.

It is one of the greatest love stories in history, set against the end of the British Empire and the birth of African independence -  a time when it was unthinkable for a black man to marry a white woman.

Directed by Amma Asante (Belle) and written by Guy Hibbert (Eye In The Sky), the film is based on the book Colour Bar by Susan Williams.  

Watch the trailer here:

The film will be released in South Africa, Botswana and East and West Africa on 9 December 2016.
