Loving

hero_loving_01

Loving is based on the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple who spent almost a decade in courts fighting for their right to marry while risking significant jail sentences. At the time the state of Virginia, where the Lovings resided, deemed all interracial romantic relations illegal (Virginia Is For Lovers my ass). Pros: On top of a moving story and a great performance by Ruth Negga, it’s an informative and educational flick, one that I wouldn’t be surprised teachers wheel in the TV for in the future. Cons: The pacing of Loving is kind of brutal, which kept me from putting it higher. I understand it was never going to be “Loving: Fury Road” but it seemed like Joel Edgerton and his distractingly weird haircut silently stares for 5 seconds before every sentence he speaks. Tier 5
