This is a wonderful movie, everyone must see it!
13 June 2000 | by soul2See all my reviews

I just saw this movie on TV last week, only the ending, then I checked the TV guide and seen it was rated PG-13 I didn't no it was on video, so I rented it. Now I must buy it! Timothy Hutton and Lela Rochon really played their parts, for the loving's to take a stand when all odds are against them, is just remarkable! especially in the 60's. This movie should have been in theater's the loving's showed that interracial couples should have the right to marry each other without being harassed or put down because of their race. The judge brought up God and God showed him what was right, because look at the results of interracial couples all over the world. this movie was in the TV guide four months ago, but I'm not into movies about racism so I didn't watch it, now I am glad I've seen it.
