A wonderful movie from start to finish. Beautifully made and acted and a great history lesson as well. Highly recommend.
Beautifully made film about the beginnings of Botswana. Based on truth, makes your hair curl at international diplomacy. Got to be one of the best films I've seen for a few years
Great story which proves love does not care what colour you are. The performance from Rosamund Pike as the naive young woman falling for a black prince. Is beautifully told. Rosamund Pike grows as an... Read more actress in this film. Her character grows strong and becomes a leader of her new adopted country. The lead actor is equally good as well. I highly recommend this film. I saw it with my mother on my birthday in January and we both loved it. Can't wait see it again.
I really enjoyed this film though it is told in a rather light, romantic style
A real love story in every sense of the word. Together they faced the back lash from their families as well as all the provocation and hatred that racism can bring. Based on a true story which deserved... Read more to be told, but I do think that Prince Seretse was rather naive in thinking his marriage to a white woman was ever going to be readily accepted.
A great story, beautifully filmed depicting the period, and a history lesson as well. What insufferable snobs the Brits were in their colonial days if any of the acting was based on truth, as suggested. Highly recommended.
great depiction of history enjoyed acting scenery and political comment
A beautifully made movie. Directing, screenplay, acting etc all excellent. And if the British diplomats were really like that it almost makes me ashamed to be British!
