Synopsis:
In 1958, in the state of Virginia, the idea of interracial marriage was not only considered to be immoral to many, it was also illegal. When Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred (Ruth Negga) fall in love, they are aware of the eyes staring at them and the words said behind their backs. It is when they get married, however, that words and looks become actions, and the two are arrested. The couple decide to take their case all of the way to the Supreme Court in order to fight for their love.

Superb well-written drama - Loving review by PC

Spoiler Alert
19/07/2017

This covers a story most people won't be aware of and gives it a personal feel without the need to grandstand any of the points. It is a personal drama about two people who love each other and want to be left alone to do so, even from those who want to change the law that prevents them being together. The performances are superb, especially from Ruth Negga who has the more showy role. If you do enjoy this then try and watch Jeff Nichols' other films which are just as good.

You won't be Loving this - Loving review by BS

Spoiler Alert
28/12/2017

Two stars are awarded for the cinematography and authentic backdrops, props and costumes, not to mention dialogue. Might work better as a novel (was it a based on a book?), but it's a slow and predictable tale of a certain time and place where - guess what? People used to be a bit racist. It's very slow, and might have been a great film if it was released 40 - 50 years ago.

Must try harder! - Loving review by BE

Spoiler Alert
27/06/2018

Movie apparently based on a true story. I couldn't engage with any of the characters (if characters they be) and found the incessant doe-eyed expression on the face of the female lead very irritating. Male lead was glum and both were humourless. Bordering on the banal, I wouldnt recommend this to anybody. One star for the song accompanying the credits
