Highly Suspect Reviews: A United Kingdom

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.
