    A United Kingdom (Czech Republic-UK-USA. Biography-drama-romance, 111 minutes, rated PG-13). Fact-based tale of the political repercussions that followed when the prince of Botswana (David Oyelowo, who played Martin Luther King, Jr. in “Selma”) marries a white British woman (Rosamund Pike, of “Gone Girl”) in the late 1940s. “For all the tumult surrounding them, the couple remain the focus of the film. The director, Amma Asante, emphasizes this in her staging of the unequivocal and unaffected affection and regard they exchange. Here, as with her 2014 feature ‘Belle,’ Ms. Asante addresses contemporary concerns via period romance, and her commitment to the romance is not a feint. While her filmmaking style can sometimes come across as staid, [the director's] sense of pace is always acute. The best reason to see ‘A United Kingdom,’ however, is the performance by Mr. Oyelowo. Mr. Oyelowo, who is one of the best actors working today, imbues his portrayal of Seretse with a disarming delicacy and vulnerability that make the strengths he is later forced to show all the more convincing. It is remarkable, genuinely riveting work.” – New York Times
