Brief Synopsis: "Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple, married in Virginia 1958. Authorities broke into their home, arrested them, and they were sentenced to a year in the state penitentiary. This sentence was suspended on the condition that they be exiled from the state of Virginia. Richard and Mildred would spend the next nine years fighting to get home. All of this, because Richard was a white man and Mildred a part black, part Cherokee woman."

Sober Film Critic James Brown75 - Politically relevant, historically significant, and emotionally resonant, Jeff Nichols's Loving is one impressive piece of cinema. It does have a few lulls, but it is nonetheless impressive on the whole.

Bryan Lienesch70 - It probably could've been the film it deserved to be had the writing and direction brought the level of gravitas to the story that it needed.
