Happy New Year to all our Blewbury Film Supporters! We are very happy to announce our Spring Screening for the 29th March will be “A United Kingdom”.
This incredible film tells the story of a true-life romance between an English office clerk and the future king of Botswana. David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike star in this beautifully shot, crowd-pleasing, film about post-war history that could be filed under “stranger than fiction”.
Rosamund Pike is Ruth Williams, a clerk from Blackheath, South London, working in Lloyds of London in 1947, who is swept off her feet by handsome law student Seretse Khama (Oyelowo). Ruth doesn’t know that Seretse is an African king in waiting, leader-to-be of the Bamangwato people of Bechuanaland (later Botswana), the British protectorate to which he is due to return on completion of his studies.
Handsomely shot on locations in the UK and Botswana by Sam McCurdy, A United Kingdom contrasts sweeping exteriors with the battle between an entrenched establishment and an emerging republic.
