The true story of a love that shook an empire

The real-life story of Seretse Khama, who became king of Bechuanaland (modern day Botswana) in 1925, and his relationship with Ruth Williams, an English office worker from London. Their relationship caused great controversy in both the United Kingdom and apartheid South Africa and after their marriage in 1947, the couple were forced to live in exile in the UK until they were eventually allowed to settle in Bechuanaland in 1956 after a public outcry.

"The result is a rich, stirring look at one of modern society's most enduring -- and yes, inspirational -- marriages, underpinned by political machinations that remain all too relevant." ~ indieWIRE

"Elegant, intelligent, evocative and emotion-inducing cinema" ~ Stuff.co.nz
