Loving

DINE-IN at the MOVE | By Peter Vonder Haar –

200-lovingIt’s both shocking and also not that hard to believe it’s only been 50 years since it became legal in this country for mixed race couples to marry. Less about the Civil Rights movement itself or the Supreme Court case that gives the film its name, Loving instead focuses on the relationship between the Lovings, Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred (Ruth Negga) and the day-to-day manner in which they attempt to navigate the forces arrayed against them by both the state of Virginia and the nation itself. Director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) gives the film its intimate feel, which contributes to Loving’s dramatic weight.
