Director Jeff Nichols celebrates the landmark case Loving vs. Virginia which struck down anti-miscegenation laws in the United States. Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga play the two kindly lovers respectfully if not with any real passion. The movie is noteworthy for a more nuanced underplayed style than you normally see these race related films. Perhaps that is what makes the scenario more chilling in that once upon a time in America, these laws were seen as perfectly normal. It's neat to see actors like Michael Shannon and Joel Edgerton play more noble characters than audiences are used to. Ruth Negga is given a chance to shine as the quiet but courageous Mildred Loving. It's not quite as good as Selma but it's worth a look.

"Loving" also avoids some of the clichés of other period dramas from the Civil Rights era. Richard and Mildred aren’t portrayed as just two named individuals in a historic appeal to the United States Supreme Court. Or simply as two people who dec...
