Name: A UNITED KINGDOM now playing at The Plaza Cinema & Media Arts Center, Patchogue
Date: March 20, 2017
Time: 7:15 PM - 9:15 PM EDT
Event Description:

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.

“An interracial romance between a British clerk and African royalty highights a historical flashpoint and offers a primo acting showcase for Oyelowo and Pike. It's a defiant cry from the heart.” — Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“A rousing true love story that brings African history to life.” — Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
