Before this movie, I did not know much of the history of Botswana and it's Independence. After this movie, I did a great deal of studying it's journey to Independence, and in my humble opinion, this movie does a good job. As people who travel to Africa frequently, my family was mesmerized watching this film and watching history unfold.
If you enjoy love stories, historical movies, rooting for the underdog, or simply a visually beautiful film, you will enjoy this film. To say the lead actor, David Oyelowo, does a wonderful job, is an understatement.
