The Film Stage -
Nichols has crafted a beautifully moving and tasteful document of a quietly groundbreaking event, told from a very human perspective.
The Telegraph -
Loving is short on grandstanding and hindsight, long on tenderness and honour, and sticks carefully to the historical record. It also features two central performances of serious delicacy and depth.
It should confirm Nichols' reputation as a mature filmmaker of great tact and intelligence.
Nichols-director of Take Shelter, Mud and, most recently, Midnight Special-tells the Lovings' story in a way that feels immediate and modern, and not just like a history lesson.
The story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple, whose challenge of their anti-miscegenation arrest for their marriage in Virginia led to a legal battle that would end at the US Supreme Court.
