The marriage of the Lovings brought about a Supreme Court decision
There are many errors in this film. In the opening scene, the date on screen is 1960, and that is followed by what is presumed to be the first time Richard and Mildred meet. However, as is mentioned several times in the film, they'd known each other all their lives. Second, they were in fact married in 1958; when the Supreme Court tries their case in 1967, the words on screen say "nine years"--1967 minus nine is 1958. This movie also contains the incorrect information that the Lovings were arrested the night of their marriage; in fact, they were arrested five weeks later. In the course of the story, Richard explodes when he is laid off; he waves a piece of paper and tells Mildred that he sold their car--a distinct late 50s blue Chevrolet. In a subsequent scene and from then on, they're in the car he sold. These are only some of the awful errors in what had the potential to be a good movie of political importance. Too bad!
