Synopsis

A United Kingdom :-Watch A United Kingdom on 123moviestvshow.com,The inspiring true story of Seretse Khama, the King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana), and Ruth Williams, the London office worker he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the British and South African governments. Seretse and Ruth defied family, Apartheid and empire – their love triumphed over every obstacle flung in their path and in so doing they transformed their nation and inspired the world.Those who recognize the reference of my summary line will remember the legendary performances in “Guess who is coming to dinner” (1967), made just one year after Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo), the protagonist of “A united kingdom” (2016), became the democratically elected president of independent Botswana. It would be a long shot to suggest that this true story of love and courage overcoming formidable odds against an interracial marriage inspired the making of “Guess who is coming to dinner”. As well, while these two movies half a century apart, one true-events-based and one fictional, are both about the love between a black man and a white woman, their focuses are different. “A united kingdom” is first and foremost their love story, among other things. “Guess who is coming to dinner” on the other hand depicts how the parents of the daughter react to the situation, and in the process won Katharine Hepburn an Oscar and Spencer Tracy a nomination (which he might well have won). Those that are moved by “A united kingdom” and have not seen “Guess who is coming to dinner” are highly recommended to get a DVD and watch it.
