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.
