Fobidden Love Triumphant Trailer: A United Kingdom!

A United Kingdom

In 1948, Seretse Khama, the king of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), married Ruth Williams, a London office worker – very much against the wishes of Great Britain, South Africa and their own families.

They changed history.

A United Kingdom is their story. It will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening in the United Kingdom on November 25th. North American dates have not yet been set. Check out the trailer after the break.
