I'm just going to tell you that A United Kingdom revealed to me an interesting historical incident of which I was previously unaware, tying it to some broader historical issues that are continuingly relevant.

Screenwriter Guy Hibbert and Asante pull off a precision balancing act, illuminating the intensity of the love the couple shared and never once allowing their romance to take a back seat to the issues.

Director Amma Asante is carving a niche for herself, making gorgeous-looking cinema from untold histories. Her best asset here is Oyelowo.

Noble but stuffy, "A United Kingdom's" good intentions suffer from its dull, predictable beats.

Oyelowo and Pike make for a convincing couple, even if the romance is the love-at-first-sight variety that requires a certain leap of faith.

Oyelowo captures Seretse's quiet dignity while also hinting at the limits of his patience. And Pike is compelling as a woman who rises to the occasion regardless of the circumstances.

Oyelowo and Pike are superb, but everything else about this film feels desperately formulaic.

It is very predictable but I was invested enough to find it entertaining.

Asante's film successfully balances the personal and the political...to create a very moving insight into an almost overlooked but crucial chapter that defined the recent history of two countries.

There isn't a shred of irony here, but a sly sense of subversion as Assante places not only a little-known piece of history, but an interracial romance at that, in the bold, proud and dignified tradition British historical narratives.
