‘What now seems an almost unbelievable story of racism and heroism plays out in the capable hands of Amma Asante, centred like a rock on the strength of the couple’s passion’. ★★★★★ Kate Muir, The Times
‘Having cut her teeth as an actor, the director draws terrific performances from her cast, who dance nimbly around some rather on-the-nose dialogue.’ ★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer
