With terrific warmth and idealism – and irresistible storytelling relish – director Amma Asante (Belle) presents a stirring biopic of Seretse Khama, the former African royal who courted controversy with his interracial marriage to Englishwoman Ruth Williams and later led his nation to independence from the British Empire as the first president of Botswana.
A romantic true story from a strange, shameful chapter of our postwar past and a powerful testament to a defiant and enduring love story.
‘Compelling and moving’
‘In its celebration of tolerance and liberal, humanist values, it is reminiscent of old Richard Attenborough movies.’
