Variety is reporting that Fox Searchlight is in final negotiations to buy the North American rights to “A United Kingdom”.
Fox Searchlight is in final negotiations to buy North American rights to “A United Kingdom,” Variety has learned.
Amma Asante’s romantic drama centers on the political blowback that follows an African prince’s marriage to a London office worker. The mixed-race couple encounters prejudice over a union that challenged the system of apartheid.
The film received solid reviews when it screened at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, with many critics praising the performances of leads David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike.
Variety’s Peter Debruge faulted the picture as “overly simplistic,” but The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw hailed is as a “gutsy movie” in a four-star notice.
Pathe handled sales of the film. Footage from the film screened for buyers several months ago, and the reaction was mixed. A shorter cut, with roughly 20 minutes trimmed, screened at Toronto, which is the version that Searchlight will release.
Fox Searchlight also purchased domestic rights to “Jackie” out of this year’s festival. That historical drama about Jacqueline Kennedy is expected to be an awards contender. It wasn’t an entirely successful festival, however. Searchlight’s Sundance pick-up, “The Birth of a Nation,” continued to face controversy over the college rape trial and acquittal of its writer, producer, director, and star Nate Parker.

A couple of more reviews of “A United Kingdom” came out. Be sure to check out the snippets below and click on the links to check out the full reviews!
“The performances from Pike and Oyelowo are terrific. Pike has been doing solid work for years, but with her astonishing turn in Gone Girl, it feels like she’s finally being given the lead roles she deserves. She brings a restrained strength to Ruth while also allowing for vulnerability, and she and Oyelowo make a dynamite team.” – Collider
“Oyelowo exudes quiet dignity but he can belt out a rousing speech when he needs to, and Pike genuinely seems to be enjoying herself as Ruth transforms, little by little, from shrinking violet to jeep-driving, baby-swaddling, authority-baiting queen of the veldt.” – Time Out
“Although some of the dialogue is a little expository and on the nose, particularly in the early stages of the film, there is a connection between Pike and Oyelowo which feels authentic and warm.” – Screen Daily
“Pike and Oyelowo have a hearty, wholemeal chemistry together, and play their small moments with sincerity and a light elegance.” – The Telegraph
