Rosamund Pike plays Ruth, an office girl in London who is swept off her feet by the dashing and handsome Seretse (David Oyelowo) who turns out to be a prince and she goes with him to his kingdom where they live happily ever after. Is this a Disney film? Oh, wait, he’s black, she’s white, it’s 1948 and South Africa (which recently had instated apartheid laws) ain’t having it. And if they ain’t having it, England wasn’t either, considering how much post-WWII debt they had and how much money was coming in from South Africa’s diamond and gold mines. What’s a lovely young couple to do? Put up a middle finger to the world and challenge established mores, that’s what. Chris and Beau take a look at this true story.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
