About the Movie
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, Black Mass) and Mildred (Ruth Negga, World War Z) 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 in this passionate and gripping drama that critics are calling "a masterpiece." – Jason Gorber, ScreenAnarchy.com

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: What is radical about Nichols's film is the extent to which he focuses not on the legal fight and ensuing national attention but on the Lovings themselves.
Fresh: I like this movie a lot, but it may be too intimate, too slow for some moviegoers. The approach feels organic and wholly intentional, though ...
Fresh: Intimate, moving and superbly underplayed, "Loving" is every bit as soft-spoken and subtly implacable as its protagonists.
Fresh: Effectively acted and occasionally moving, the film both benefits from and is undermined by writer/director Jeff Nichols' no-frills approach to the circumstances leading up to the court case.
Accurate and Tasteful Take on Real History and Courage
This is a very classy telling of the true story of two country folks who fell in love and got married- and happened to be breaking the law in doing so. In a time when marriage between black and white persons was illegal, these two very private people who were minding their own business were treated very shabbily by their community and the state. In the end, they proved to have more courage than either of them knew they had- and they set a stunning example of how plain, ordinary people can make historic change and drag our society forward.
To the reviewer who said this is "poltically correct tripe," I feel sorry for you. If it is politically correct to be against racism and for equal treatment under the law, then I'm very happy to be politically correct. You know, kind of like the constitution is politically correct.
Very slow-moving and disappointing movie.
