A United Kingdom

Fri. 3/10 -Thurs. 3/23

(PG-13) 1 Hr. 56 Min. In English (Drama, Romance)

A United Kingdom is based on extraordinary true events. In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. They were a perfect match, yet their proposed marriage 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. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana. This beautifully told love story cuts across continents and tells a chapter of history few are aware of.

Based Julian Barnes' short, penetrating novel about how we self-protectively edit our memories, The Sense of An Ending follows Tony Webster (Jim Broadbent), a retiree who leads a reclusive and quiet existence.
