The best on the box
James Croot’s television picks for the week ahead.
A United Kingdom, 8.30pm, Saturday, Rialto
While the political machinations of this 2016 based-on-fact drama intrigue, it’s the central love story of AmmaAsante’s drama that compels, thanks largely to two magnificent performances from Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo. The pair’s chemistry is palpable, while their character’s individual strengths and weaknesses are apparent. Elegant, intelligent, evocative and emotioninducing cinema
Whisky Galore, 8.30pm, Sunday, Rialto
Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo star in A United Kingdom.
