Once again, Hollywood is blowing our minds with stories we probably should have learned in history class years ago.
If your 2016 pop culture picks were historical dramas The Crown and Loving, you’re almost certain to love A United Kingdom. Out February 10, the film tells the true story of the controversial marriage between Seretse Khama (played by David Oyelowo) and Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike).

Prepare to get swept up in it all as you watch the trailer. Don’t we all just love a good ol’ against-the-odds love story?
