Rotten Tomatoes


Based on a true story. In the late 1940s Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana caused an international stir when he declared his intention to marry a white woman from London. The main characters wonderfully illustrate what strength of character can achieve, despite severe opposition from those in power. The movie does not show a flattering picture of how Britain forced its influence in the region or of the moral standards of political leaders.
