Based on the true story that led the Supreme Court to declare unconstitutional Virginia's anti-miscegenation law (in Loving v. Virginia, 1967), paving the way for legal interracial marriages. See more »
A restrained, intelligent and powerful movie, set in the 1950s-60s southern states of the USA, telling the true story about the Lovings, an interracial married couple who challenged Virginia's anti-miscegenation law (The Racial Integrity Act of 1924) and saw it overturned.
The film is engaging not only because of its important subject matter but because the subject matter is dealt with so well; with a superb script that opens up facets of the couples experiences with great subtlety and understanding; outstanding performances all round that deliver rich character portrayals; and brilliant production work that creates a tremendous feel for the time and place. That there were more movies of this quality around! And of course the great poignancy of this movie is that it is based on true events, and so stands as a wonderful testimony to true love.
An important, powerful and superb film.
