Review: A United Kingdom

A United Kingdom is a movie we need now!
A United Kingdom is a movie that could not have come out at a better time. A movie about a divide in a country is something relevant with what is happening today, that you should take the time to go out and see this movie. Although this review will be politics free, just comment your thoughts below, and maybe I'll just comment my opinion down there as well.

A United Kingdom pits a marriage between a Kingdom. With the Uncle of a new King not agreeing with his choice of future Queen, the new King is forced to be banned from his country for a number of years. The marriage must be tested to see if it can last through a separation and test of family.

There is more that happens before the marriage itself. I don't want it to seem like it's all about the bad Uncle in Africa. The family of the women doesn't approve of her choice in the man, and doesn't want her in there house anymore.

Take your time to go and see this movie, as it is important to see what Africa went through almost fifty years ago. This is our life time. We should be aware in what is going on. Rant over.

Stay through the credits to see the real life King and Queen, to get a better idea of how they looked.

    I really enjoyed this film. It was a well told adaption of the true story of interracial love during the era of Apartheid. It was easy to be transported into the 1940s and 50s time frame and to feel all the struggles that the couple faced. Check it out.

    I loved this movie! It told a great story about love and triumph, and it was a major slap in the face to racism!

  4. This was a very good movie. It wasn't as good as 'Hidden Figures' but similar with regards to an uplifting inspirational message and a true love story.

  6. This movie, based on a true story, portrayed the love that two people had for each other. One black, one white, living in a time of determined segregation in the 1940's these two people fared a brutal ocean of fear and hatred during their lifetime. They managed to stay together, build a family, and oh yes they brought a county together with sheer determination, never giving up. What a wonderful story of the power of love. Great Movie - take time to see it. This one is well worth the time.

  8. I loved this movie!! David Oyelowo was fantastic as was Rosamund Pike. It was clean, no nudity or bad language. Good history lesson as well, although the politics might be lost on young children.

  10. Great movie for American children to see, as well as children abroad. This is still an ongoing problem in the world. No matter how much people love one another, there are still governments and some tribal populations that continue to object to interracial dating, marriages, children, etc. They seemed to accept her in this movie, but it wasn't immediate. The struggle continues.
