Loving tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple arrested in the 1960s for having the audacity to get married. Their case eventually winds up settled by the Supreme Court. The story follows their struggle to deal with maddening, clearly unconstitutional laws, a topic that…may feel familiar in today times. At the center of this movie are two great performances, and Ruth Negga as Mildred Loving is ethereal, multi-layered and compelling, Thanks to her restrained performance, Negga earned a much deserved Oscar nomination.

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.

I'm Loving 'Loving'

If the movie "Loving," the story of Richard Loving (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred Loving (Ruth Negga) could be described with one word, then that one word would be "quiet." There’s no overuse of dialogue in this tale of two lovers who find themselves up against a brick wall when the State of Virginia convicts them of breaking its miscegenation law. Instead, Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga display powerful emotion after emotion with telling facial expressions, and evocative body movements-the sort of nonverbal communication that speaks volumes.

"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...
