GOWER FILM CLUB: United Kingdom……on Wednesday 26th April (7.30pm) in Reyoldston Village Hall. With terrific warmth and idealism – and irresistible storytelling relish – director Amma Asante gives us a romantic true story from our dowdy postwar past. It is a tale of star-crossed lovers, with the bigoted British government playing a particularly shabby and nasty House Of Capulet: a story of imperialism, bully-ism, and Westminster functionaries passing off their taboo horror of interracial marrying as a matter of realism and political expediency. Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo’s performances in A United Kingdom keep the film together through all of its twisty political intrigue, grounding the film with a relationship that makes you understand why it was worth risking everything.
