Here are a few photos from the New York premiere of A United Kingdom, which took place on Feb. 6, 2017 at The Paris Theatre on West 56th Street.
The movie tells the true story of the forbidden love of King Seretse Khama of Botswana (David Oyelowo) and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), a white woman from London. Their romance caused an international uproar when they decided to marry in the late 1940s just as apartheid was being introduced into South Africa. It was a decision that altered the course of African history.
A United Kingdom opens in theaters on Feb. 10, 2017. Directed by Amma Asante, the movie also stars Tom Felton, Laura Carmichael, Terry Pheto and Jessica Oyelowo.
