Based on extraordinary true events, this moving film is set in 1947, when Seretse Khama (Oyelowo; "Selma"), the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams (Pike; "Gone Girl"), a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their relationship 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. Despite the terrible pressures they faced, Seretse and Ruth never wavered - they fought for their love every step of the way, and in so doing changed their nation and inspired the world. Well-acted, solidly crafted, and all-around worthy, this solid and ultimately satisfying drama presents an absorbing look at a singular true-life love story.
