Leo Brady reviews “Loving” for his AMovieGuy.com site


The opening shot of Loving focuses on the gaze between two people in love and in the room it is completely silent. It is evident, that director Jeff Nichols has in this moment, captured the personification of what love is all about in one perfect shot, and that continues throughout his superb new film. Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred Loving (Ruth Negga) created their own path to the 1958 landmark supreme court battle of Loving v. Virginia, which allowed interracial couples to legally marry in any state. Loving is not just an ordinary bio-pic of the events that took place, but the embodiment of what it actually means- to love.
