5 reasons why A United Kingdom is your perfect 'Wednesdate' movie!


Looking for a moving and powerful date night alternative to big screen blockbuster action? Then here's why acclaimed new British movie A United Kingdom is your perfect 'Wednesdate' movie.

Forget explosions! This has got human fireworks

Belle director Amma Asante's new movie explores the real-life marriage between Botswana's eventual President Seretse Khama and his British wife Ruth Williams, a union that caused uproar and turmoil. If you're both looking for a human, engaging drama that will linger in your minds, you can't go wrong with this.

It redefines love

Tired of watching slushy romantic melodramas together? Want to watch a film that will genuinely help you both appreciate one another that little bit more? Then check out the trials and tribulations of Seretse and Ruth's marriage, one that threatens to tear not one but two countries apart even as they pledge devotion to one another. If that doesn't set romantic goals for you both, nothing will.

Amazing performances

Have you both been craving some acting fireworks of late? Then get down to Cineworld and revel in the majesty of two our finest, Selma's David Oyelowo and Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike, putting their Hollywood counterparts in the shade. It beats staying in watching The Apprentice, right?

Your experience doesn't end with the movie!

Are one or both of you Unlimited members? Then chew over the experience of the movie with 25% off at Pizza Hut, Chiquitos or Frankie and Bennys.

It brings the feels

We don't know about you but this year has left us in serious need of the feel-good factor. So if you're both looking for an uplifting experience that will stick in the memory, go and watch A United Kingdom: with its superb cast, director and topical story, you won't be able to shake this off in a hurry.
