A UNITED KINGDOM
Date: Thursday, February 9, 2017
Location: Bow Tie Squire Cinemas (115 Middle Neck Road, Great Neck)
Directed by Amma Asante | UK | 105 minutes | 2016 | English
A United Kingdom is the true story of the forbidden love of King Seretse Khama of Botswana (David Oyelowo) and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), a white woman from London, which caused an international uproar when they decided to marry in the late 1940s just as apartheid was being introduced into South Africa. It was a decision that altered the course of African history. Two luminous actors, David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike, bring to life one of the great forbidden romances of the 20th century. That it’s all based on a true story gives Amma Asante’s follow-up to the acclaimed Belle even greater impact. Both sweeping and intimate, A United Kingdom illustrates how love can challenge even the harshest constraints.
A United Kingdom opens in select theaters February 10th with a wide release on February 17th from Fox Searchlight Pictures.

About the Gold Coast Film Festival:
Located on the “Gold Coast” in the Town of North Hempstead, the Gold Coast International Film Festival was founded with the purpose of establishing a home on Long Island to showcase the work of exceptional filmmakers and provide the public with an insider’s view of the film industry. Festival events include screenings, workshops, conversations with prominent members of the film community, special events and parties.
During the annual seven-day festival, area residents, visitors, members of the business and film communities, public officials, students and academics come together to celebrate the art and influence of cinema in the charming and historic towns and villages of Long Island’s Gold Coast. In addition to the Fall festival, GCIFF also presents dozens of preview screenings and filmmaker Q&As throughout the year at their year-round Furman and Douglas Elliman Film Series.
The Gold Coast is just a short ride from New York City, and is easily accessible by car, train and the area’s three major airports: John F. Kennedy International, LaGuardia, and MacArthur.
