Goofs

When Mildred finishes sewing part of a garment, she yanks it away from the machine, then she reaches for the scissors. When sewing on a machine, one never yanks at the fabric, at least not without carefully pinching the area just sewn. Otherwise, the area just sewn puckers, plus a lot of thread is pulled off the spool and the bobbin, and thus wasted. See more »

Missing the historical part
21 December 2016 | by V TaylorSee all my reviews

This could have been a much more interesting film if: 1- we got more backstory on how they met and if they considered the dangers and difficulties of being an inter-racial couple 2- there were fewer long"meaningful" pauses. I started to get impatient as another five minutesof silent stares went by. 3 - the events were compressed so that muchmore time was given to both the state and federal court proceedings 4- much more of the actual Supreme Court case was shown. The Lovings didn't want to attend the court proceedings, but *I* did! I wanted to hear the arguments on both sides and comments of the judges. I wanted to get a glimpse into the thinking of the time. Surely all of this is available.

Nice scenery, good score, and for those of us who remember the '60s, lots of shirtwaist dresses and plaid shirts. The two main characters are excellent actors, especially the female lead. But overall, it's very very slow going with almost no passionate arguments about the heart of the matter: why miscegenation laws were on the books at all. Can't really recommended it whole-heartedly.
