A tale of star-crossed lovers based on the true story of Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo), Prince of Bechuanaland (now Botswana) who falls for gawky typist Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike) while studying law in London in 1947. When they marry and relocate to Africa, this interracial marriage is not respected either by the imperial British government, or people of Bechuanaland, who are suspicious of their haughty white queen. The taboo of an African prince’s marriage to an Englishwoman, just as South Africa was enacting its apartheid laws to separate blacks and whites, becomes both a soaring love story and a triumphant political message of hope.
