Loving's restrained drama has a strong emotional undercurrent carried by the tender bond Nichols shows between the couple.

Sight & Sound

Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress.

Jeff Nichols (Mud, Midnight Special), one of the best directors of his generation, returns with this powerful and understated historical drama celebrating the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple fighting for their right to marry.

Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga give exceptional performances as Richard and Mildred Loving, who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – making their love story an inspiration to couples everywhere.

Nichols wisely takes an understated approach to telling the painful and sadly still relevant real-life tale, with sensitive performances breathing life into this historical drama.
