An excellent depiction of life for interracial couples of the time
6 October 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I caught this movie on TV when it first debuted, but now own it on video. It is truly an excellent portrayal of the kind of life interracial MARRIED couples had to deal with during this time of heated topics of race and equality--Civil Rights. Both Timothy Hutton and Lela Rachon performed their real-life characters exquisitely. There are so many problems that arose during the late 1950s and into the 1960s, but we must also remember that there still exist racial issues that should not even be. The day every person realizes it was NOT intended by God to keep people of different color from intermixing and interacting with amongst each other, as the state court judge so hypocritically proclaimed in the face of the Lovings that day they were sentenced...someone who obviously did not know his Bible very well...will be quite a day indeed.

For the interest in learning more about interracial relationships back in the 1960s, I would recommend seeing the movie entitled "Love Field" with Michelle Pfeiffer and Dennis Haysbert. It is not based on a true story, but it does depict the attitude of our country toward black and white relationships during the civil rights movements.
