“A United Kingdom” is based on the true story of Sereste Khama (David Oyelowo), the king of Bechuanaland and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike) insurance clerk from London – who meet each other at the London Mission Society mixer. After one year of courtship, the couple marries in 1948, making Ruth the queen of Bechuanaland.
Bechuanaland is baffled with uncertainty because the idea of having a white queen ruling their country is very disturbing to them as a queen alludes to a motherly figure. On the top of that South Africa, which actually borders Bechuanaland in the south was a victim to Apartheid, could attack them for their deed.
To conclude, “A United Kingdom”, it is a romantic melodrama that transgresses racial and class boundaries, to question the British supremacy.It is a beautiful story oh how Sereste and Williams defied Apartheid, family, and empire to show that love always triumphs, and by doing, they not only improved relations between the nations but also inspired many.
