“A United Kingdom” had its world premiere yesterday during the Toronto International Film Festival and the first reviews are out now. Unfortunately Rosamund skipped the premiere but below we’ve assembled a selection of quotes from the reviews. While the reviews have good things to say about Rosamund they tend to agree that the film is a bit simplistic.

Pike’s Ruth is just a plucky, average, post-war Englishwoman until she is forced to draw on reserves of courage and intelligence to face adversity. The scene of her driving herself to a local hospital with contractions and giving birth screaming shows the stuff she’s made of.” – Hollywood Reporter

“And Pike, as a woman who doesn’t know what she’s getting into but has the inner reservoirs of strength to rise to the occasion, knows how to navigate a role that’s significantly less complex and nuanced than, say, “Gone Girl,” in the process creating a woman to root for.” – TheWrap

“As for Pike, the fact that she is tall makes her interestingly of equal height with her lead, a pleasing visual approximation of their equal partnership in this morganatic marriage. She has a great moment in their early days of their courtship when her sister Muriel (Laura Carmichael) excitedly reads the note he has just sent, inviting Ruth to a dance and saying he could get an extra ticket if she would like to take her sister too. “But I wouldn’t like to take you!” sighs Ruth in an ecstasy of romantic certainty.” – The Guardian

“Sometimes it is just a matter of black and white. In real life, the story of the mixed-race marriage between Seretse Khama, prince of Bechuanaland (later to become first president of Botswana), and London office worker Ruth Williams was full of complication and nuance, though you wouldn’t know it from Amma Asante’s oversimplified “A United Kingdom,” which treats their love story like another Disney princess movie, reducing the drama to a series of polite disagreements between the couple and the cardboard officiates who opposed their union.” – Variety
