Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana causes an international stir when he marries a white woman from London in the late 1940s.
“One of the best films of the year” DAILY MAIL.
“With terrific warmth and idealism – and irresistible storytelling relish – director Amma Asante gives us a romantic true story from our dowdy postwar past.This movie has candour, heartfelt self-belief, and an unfashionable conviction that love conquers all – though not immediately….”THE GUARDIAN (UK)
“…delivers both a heartfelt emotional story and a grim lesson in 20th-century British foreign policy. The whirlwind mixed-race romance.The result is a film which should connect with a mature, awards season audience.”
“.. stirring, heartstring-strumming stuff nonetheless – a chapter of history that rewards a close reading.”
