David Oyelowo is now one my new favourite actors! In this fascinating film based on a true story, Oyelowo is Seretse Khama, the future king of Botswana. In London studying law, Seretse meets and falls in love with a British white woman, Ruth Williams (Rosamunde Pike). Of course as this is the 1940’s, they face all kinds of turmoil from literally everyone (including the devious British government) and must fight for their love. What an amazing couple!
