Loving

Biography Romance Drama


 

Richard and Mildred Loving were an interracial couple who married in the 1950s when their being wed was against the law in Virginia USA where they resided.

"Loving" almost underplays the importance of the civil rights case and Supreme Court decision at its heart by focusing on the protagonists who did not seek prominence and tried to avoid notoriety. They simply wanted to live together and raise a family. The beauty of this movie is in its modest approach, without grand speeches or challenging confrontations... social change was almost incidental as more humble goals were sought. The power of love.
