Dementia Friendly: A United Kingdom


Dementia Friendly: A United Kingdom

Relaxed Screening
Thursday 5th January 2017

A relaxed screening of A United Kingdom. All are welcome.

In Dementia Friendly Film screenings we understand that people may want to talk during the film, walk around or leave the cinema - the lights are left on low in the cinema to make that easier for you. Come early and enjoy a free hot drink and biscuits before the film!

A United Kingdom is a powerful testament to the defiant and enduring love story of Seretse Khama, King of Bechuanaland (modern Botswana) and Ruth Williams, the London office worker he married in 1948 in the face of fierce opposition from their families and the government of the time. Anchored by commanding performances from Oyelowo and Pike, Asante’s filmmaking relishes the contrasts between the cool, subdued tones of London and the colour-saturated heat of Botswana. This is a film of great contemporary relevance, one that celebrates the triumph of love and intelligence over intolerance and oppression, and which confirms Asante as one of the UK’s most distinctive and important filmmakers.

Dir. Amma Asante, UK, 2016, 110 mins.
Cast. David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Jack Davenport.
