A romantic yet thought-provoking film for Valentine’s Day: the 1940s true story of the love between a London woman and the progressive prince of current-day Botswana. Their remarkable marriage resisted the opposition of both British colonial powers and Botswana’s leaders, while also serving to challenge institutionalised racial segregation, recently introduced in neighbouring South Africa. Underneath the gorgeous shots of landscape lies a fascinating, heart-warming story.
‘An impressively crowd-pleasing piece of intelligent screen entertainment.’ (Mark Kermode, Observer).
