A United Kingdom and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

By Chris Kavan - 11/16/16 at 09:45 AM CT

Well, it's another case of feast or famine and this week, I'm feeling hungry for a lot more. Once again I'm going to have to use my powers of stretching my interest to find a movie that I want to talk about. Thus, I turn my attention toward a biography drama about an unconventional relationship in the 1940s that rocked a nation and opened many eyes. I mean, it looks like an excellent film (it was selected for both the Toronto Film Festival and London Film Festival) but it's not exactly the type of film that I rush out to see (but I probably should instead of the next Marvel film). In any case, that's my choice and I'm sticking to it.

MPAA Official Logo

Our drama in question is A United Kingdom. The film follows the Botswana Prince, Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo) who, to the scandal of the international community, pursues a relationship with a white, British woman Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike) in the 1940s. Late 2016/early 2017 seems to be a prime time to release dramas that revolve mostly around race: Moonlight, Loving, Fences - these are all films that have gained great critical reception and are all likely to be candidates for the Oscars. Now, A United Kingdom isn't dropping until February, but it is obvious they are angling for the same audience - but whether it gains the same reception remains to be seen. Jack Davenport, Tom Felton, Laura Carmichael, Terry Pheto and Jessica Oyelowo round out the cast. Rated PG-13 for some language including racial epithets and a scene of sensuality.

That is my lone judgement call for the week, but I would be remiss if I didn't remind you to please check out the full MPAA Ratings Bulletin below:
