It's no secret that the British government is made up of largely incompetent, opinionated buffoons, and their actions here further compound their ignorance. A sad piece of history, though (without going into spoilers) there is hope. A decent depiction of a true story, with some strong performances.

An acceptable depiction of equally vexing and inspiring historical events. However, the conclusion of the film in the atmosphere of intended hope to inspire further unity, has been dulled (for me personally and not by any fault of its own) by the reality of pervasive and persistent prejudice in our current world. TLDR: Nice film, good story but not much has changed for the better. Overt prejudice just became covert and is now overt again.

This bio-drama is not for those seeking immediate action. The real people portrayed are interesting as well as their incredible story, but in order for the story to move along it had taken them weeks, months and years to finally solve what the problem was besides getting over the obvious bigotry of apartheid and the politics behind it, as well as the shortcomings of well known British politicians and the whole mindset of the changing of the modern colonial powers in the 20th century. Ms. Pike and Mr. Oyelowo manage to carry a sincere pathos despite the extraordinary times they lived in. The antagonists were more held up by the racial politics of the time, without going further into their stances, except for obvious pure ignorance and hubris.

Amma Asante, already a favourite of mine, directs this true story of a handsome prince and his true love. In the wrong hands this could easily be a syrupy, virtuous, snore-fest but in the hands of Asante you get a story with huge world-changing themes, and the decisions made by Ruth and Seretse real More

**The story of two kingdoms.**

It got the mixed responses from all the quarters, but I had a little doubt that did I watched the same film! Because it was much better than what I have had heard from them. It's a biographical romance- drama from the director of 'Belle'. And like the inspiring life More
