FIRST LOOK: Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo spotted filming romantic proposal scene in new racially-charged drama A United Kingdom
Based on a true story, the film tells the tale of Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana, who caused an international stir when he married Ruth Williams, a white bank clerk from London in the late 1940s. According to The Guardian, their marriage caused huge controversy as 'He was an Oxford-educated African king, while she was a white Englishwoman working as a clerk at Lloyd’s of London.' Their 1948 marriage was considered a scandal in Apartheid-stricken South Africa and the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, now known as Botswana.
The pair were exiled from Bechuanaland in 1951. Earlier this year, Oyelowo told the paper: “Amma (Asante, director) and Rosamund are two of the most exciting talents working in film today. 'I’ve worked with both of them before and so my excitement about them joining A United Kingdom stems from a knowledge of just how inspiring they are to work with and how much daring and beauty they will bring to this epic love story.'
Other well-known names appearing in the film include Tom Felton, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Jack Davenport.
