David Oyelowo pairs up with Rosamund Pike in “A United Kingdom”, a testament to love’s power in the African political world in the 20th century.
Directed by London-born Amma Asante (“Belle”), the film tells the true story about Seretse Khama – the former African royal who drew controversy in the late 1940s after his interracial marriage with Englishwoman Ruth Williams. The movie portrays how love can persist through the most challenging of obstacles – and in this case, even change the South African nation of Botswana.
Oyelowo (“Selma”) and Asante stopped by our Nespresso Festival Central Lounge today for some GIFY fun before the red carpet world premiere later on today.
Watch as Rick Campanelli takes over the gala at Roy Thomson Hall for a LIVE broadcast at 6:30 p.m. ET.
