The power of love makes you love the Lovings (by dham629)
I had the chance to see this film at the Austin Film Festival, followed by a QA with the writer/director Jeff Nichols. Having already been familiar with this story from the made for television movie in 1996 starring Timothy Hutton and Lela Rochon as Richard and Mildred Loving. Many would ask why now or why remake this film? Well many people are simply unaware of this couple's story and their groundbreaking supreme court case, because it's certainly not mentioned or taught in public schools. So was the case for the writer/director, as mentioned he was not aware of their story. He <more>
carefully followed the documentary and archived records about them, while imagining what their conversations and dialogue would have been like between them. I found the landscape of the cinematography beautiful and breathtaking. The acting chemistry between Ruth Negga and Joel Edgarton was so tender and sincere, as you witness their love and vulnerabilities on screen, it makes you love the Lovings. Ruth Negga really shines as the quiet young woman who becomes the matriarch and leader of her family after watching the march on Washington DC, she decides to write a letter to then Attorney General Robert Kennedy. You see the transformation of two introverted people during the civil rights era become activists for change in their own way that is very powerful in this film. Historically many of the biracial descendants of this country's slave owning founding fathers never benefited from the wealth and privilege of the white ancestors. That is part of what what made their case was so monumental, in that it reversed segregationist slave laws that considered biracial children mongrel bastards and prohibited the rights of marriage and inheritance of interracial couples.
Beautiful understated love, a powerful film (by richard-1967)
This is the best film I've seen so far this year. Even though the story is widely known - complete with a recent first-rate documentary - this film delivers a tale of understated, quiet, but powerful love. In the process, the Lovings' eventual Supreme Court triumph seems almost incidental. Yet when Mrs. Loving looks out her front porch after hearing the final decision, you can almost touch her sense of pride in knowing that she, her husband, and her kids are a family in the eyes of the law for the first time.No Oliver Stone drum-banging here. By resisting the temptation to <more>
overdramatize the screenplay and allowing his two lead performers both excellent to have moments of quiet and simplicity, director Jeff Nichols has increased, not lessened, the story's power. For here was a husband and wife in love who just wanted to be left alone to live their lives. This bricklayer and this homemaker, one the provider, one the keeper of the home fires, are simple people but exceptionally genuine. Nothing in this movie is gussied up for the audience. And that makes this film all the more compelling.Assisted by lush cinematography and songs that are less familiar and thus more interesting than most films set in this period, and aided by being filmed largely in the town where it all happened, Loving has a genuineness and unadorned truth that is rare to find in films today. I loved it.
This is What Real Love Looks and Feels Like (by aharmas)
Here's the first film I really wanted to see this year. It came to my attention a few months ago, with his wonderful trailer. Watching the interaction between the leads and with a quick exposure to its theme, I couldn't wait for its release. Unlike many of the films that come loaded with plenty of anticipation and the blessing of critics, this one appeared like it would deliver. The preview trailers never changed, and we couldn't get enough of the soulful expressions of Edgerton and Nigga."Loving" is without a doubt one of the best films ever made. Simple, quiet, and <more>
touching, it gives us a window into the love story of a couple of people who didn't ask to be come part of a historical landmark case. What becomes obvious from the beginning is just how much these two people love each other. The camera gives us all kinds of perspectives into their lives, as we watch them gaze into each other, give words of encouragement, love, and support. We see the highs and lows, the special moments, the dark events that shake the foundations of what should be a normal life.Because the performances are low key, with much depending on the enormously talented Edgerton, who tells much with the pain and frustration in his eyes, as things become more and more difficult for the couple. His wife is more vocal as she sets her fight in motion. She knows and understand that change must come, but she remains true to her mate, loving him, trying to respect his decisions, but being an equal as she puts her foot down and demands his support, too.There are many beautiful scenes in the movie: the birth of their kid, the sacrifices and humiliation they go through when they are deprived of their basic rights by the racist world that surrounds them. Even the very palpable disapproval of what many consider a reckless and dangerous union becomes a source of torture for the couple. It's a difficult world to make rattling moves. These could have dire consequences, and it is a slow realization for Richard Edgerton as he slowly realizes that there are many evil and hateful beings out there."Loving" is full of delicate, quiet, and strong moments. The attraction and need to protect and support are palpable in the soulful and warm embraces and glances they continuously give each other. There are masterful performances, from the leads to the supporting cast who must bring back to life the dark elements of an era that has refuses to leave this world. Before it was worse because it was not afraid to show its ugly façade; nowadays it's more subtle, not less dangerous.Run and see it, and you will most likely love it.
Loving 2016 was written and directed by Jeff Nichols. It's based on the true story of Mildred and Richard Loving, who were ordinary people caught up in an extraordinary situation.The Lovings were married in Washington, DC, although they lived in rural Virginia. No one would have noticed or cared, except for the fact that Richard was Caucasian and Mildred was Black. At the time, a mixed marriage was a felony in the state of Virginia. The plot is based on what happened next in their lives.Joel Edgerton portrays Richard. He's a bricklayer, and, apparently, a very good one. He always <more>
has work. Ruth Negga plays Mildred. Mildred is a homebody, who does her job very well, and turns out to be the more canny of the two.The movie wouldn't work if it weren't for the skills of the two lead actors. Edgerton doesn't say much, but he makes you believe that he truly loves his wife.Negga is a true star. She's very beautiful, but director Nichols portrays her as a quiet, dignified woman who happens to be beautiful. She is so good in this role that I predict that she'll be nominated for an Oscar.As other reviewers have pointed out, the movie is a little longer than it needs to be. However, the film keeps your attention throughout. We saw it in a theater, but it will work well on the small screen.
Made with feeling. Aussie the wonderful Joel Edgerton plays the stoic Richard Loving with brilliant unembroidered simplicity and Ruth Negga plays Mildred in a particularly powerful display of emotion without words. The dialogue is parred back to a minimum leaving the looks to tell you how much they feel for each other.Richard and Mildred are shown as the integrated couple in a weird world where they fit together hand in glove and the white world and some of the rest of it doesn't want them too. Shown as a solid family with values that mean they want to be with near their families in the <more>
rural countryside in peace.Kiwi and I am biased Marton Csokas plays another great baddie, the local cop who thinks that Richard just wasn't brought up right. His lecture is a great embodiment of the sentiment of the time.I left with a profound sense of amazement that these people were prepared to risk their lives for their love. A great statement of the things people had to fight for at the time.
A real surprise and must watch movie that I highly recommend. Emotional and important, even more so in the current world we live in. (by cosmo_tiger)
"It's God's law. He made a sparrow a sparrow and a robin a robin. They're different for a reason." Richard Edgerton and Mildred Negga have just got married and are as happy as they can be. Mildred becomes pregnant and they have plans for the house they will live their lives out in. Then one night everything changes. The couple gets arrested for being married. This starts a chain of events that leads to a landmark Supreme Court decision. I went into this movie thinking it was going to be slow and a little boring. The story is important but I wasn't sure what type <more>
of movie they could make out of it. Whatever I was expecting...this movie surpassed them and then some. This is just a great movie with very little "dead air" spots and really kept me interested and moved pretty quickly considering the subject matter. You are so invested in the characters that you find yourself cheering them on and really rooting for them, despite the fact that you already know the outcome. That is the sign of a great movie, and this pulls that off perfectly. Overall, a real surprise and must watch movie that I highly recommend. Emotional and important, even more so in the current world we live in. I give this an A-.
The story of Richard and Mildred's incredible love as it conquers racism of the south in the 1950's (by Laurynwatters)
Loving ReviewJeff Nicolas newest film centres around the true story of Richard and Mildred Richard, the couple that fought the supreme court to legalize interracial marriage. On the surface this story seems interesting but over done but the way Jeff Nicolas tells this story makes it incredibly unique. Instead of focusing on the big story about Civil Rights Nicolas focuses on the very personal story of Richard and Mildred. By bringing the story down to a very personal scale Nicolas told the story in a far more impacting and effective way. This movie isn't about a revolution or a grand <more>
battle this is truly a movie about two people being in love. The movie doesn't try to rant or preach it just tries to tell a human story. Ruth Negga shone in this movie. She gave an honest, and emotional performance that really made Mildred seem like a person instead of just a character. Acting against her or more accurately with her is Joel Egerton. The character of Richard is fall less emotional so therefor Joel has less opportunities to show off, instead Joel utilized the quiet moments with his character to give a strong performance. Together the pair creates a believable, balanced relationship that shows us they're in love instead of just telling us. The accents at first are distracting and can be hard to understand but as the movie continues the audience becomes more immersed in the world and it feels natural. The major issue with the movie is its repetition. Due to the nature of the story the movie hits similar points multiple times, by condensing the events the movie could have been more efficient.The movies greatest strength is it's characters. The characters never feel like roles in a movie, instead they feel like actual people. The movie shows us small yet very personal moments between the characters that really make them come to life. From simple glances to quiet laughs you really believe that these are humans with thoughts, feelings and emotion. Tis makes the audience care much more about their story and therefore become more invested in the movie. The soundtrack much like the movie is quiet yet effective. It gives the film a very distinct optimism to it. The camera work is gorgeous. It's ability to focus on details then go to sweeping landscape shots is very impressive.
'Loving' was outstanding. I know I review a lot of films that star a person people I love, but this film was one of the best ones I saw this year Moonlight. GO SEE IT . I hesitated even writing that, thinking it couldn't be true, but it was. I was emotionally vested, riveted and compelled by it. Jeff Nichols' did a beautiful job directing this film in its fantastic simplicity, allowing Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton to deliver stellar performances as Mildred & Richard Loving. Joel Edgerton specifically stood out to me as I was a fan of his since King Arthur with Clive Owen <more>
love Clive to death, but it was bad and I absolutely love seeing him on film. He was remarkable as Richard Loving, communicating so much with his eyes and body language, I think it was a role that challenged him and I appreciate the impeccable job he did. Equally talented, Ruth Negga was also outstanding as Mildred Loving. She communicated so much just through her eyes! She is a very talented young woman who will have one outstanding career ahead of her. Marton Csokas and Michael Shannon make short but memorable appearances, honesty though both men are superbly talented so it's a real treat to have them pop up in smaller roles. Fun fact: Jeff Nichols directed Michael Shannon in another film I really liked, "Take Shelter". This film is about two people in love, an understated but very deep love which altered the very course of American history. 'Loving' begins in the late 1950s, right when racial tension was at its highest, just as the Civil Rights Movement was gaining momentum. Compounded by this and social pressures from within their community, the Lovings were forced to live in fear and even meet under cover of night. No one should have to live like this, ever. Nichols did a wonderful job of illustrating just how much this impacted their lives. How this couple, who only wanted to have a family and be together in peace, lived in a persistent state of paranoia fearing violence or worse just because they loved each other. It really is beyond all comprehension, that a black woman and a white male would be violating law simply being married. That tune sounds very familiar doesn't it, when likened to present day? All those lovely gay couples who can't hold hands just because they are scared that you are unable to mind your own damn business. Such a shame.'Loving' is also about hope. The beautiful glory of hope and love. Even despite everything, all the adversity and hardship there is always hope. That was one thing I really took away from the film. When asked how she is able to keep fighting, Mildred Loving, played by the wonderful Ruth Negga, says: Well, you loose the small battles to win the big war." This film is also about freedom, liberty and rights. This is the land of the free after all, but only free if you're not black, or gay, or anything not considered the status quo. The Lovings fought for years tooth and nail for the right to be able to love each other and raise a family the poignant part of this film to me is the ridiculous fact that they had to endure years of crap for something they should've had all along. Overall the film was just wonderful, I was moved and felt it in a very real way. The story is palpable from many perspectives which I think was a pretty challenging feat for Nichols accomplish, but he did so with efficacy. The narrative is clear: Love is love, live and let live. I say go see it, fall in love and carry it with you.
One of the best films of the year, not what you'd expect (by heisenberg12)
If we're in Oscar season and talking about Oscars, while La La Land, Moonlight, and Manchester by the Sea have been garnering all the attention, it's surprising that a little known film Loving hasn't been as exposed with critical acclaim. It seems to be the type of film critics and awards voters would love. This is a near perfect movie based on the material and a very low budget.You may make the mistake I first did and think by the title "Loving" and about an interracial couple it is some sappy, romantic love story. It's actually the main character's last name <more>
Richard Loving and the movie is a really well told, acted, and directed docudrama about the origin and evolution of a historic court case that changed the laws of marriage. The story never becomes sappy and overly romantic. In fact, Joel Edgarton's performance combined with good directing by Nichols turns this into a gritty, working man's battle with the law. Based on true events, Loving is actually the story of what eventually went on to be the Supreme Court case that legalized interracial marriage. This is one of those outstanding movies I'd score highly, but likely would never watch again or buy on DVD, but that's not to take away from how good of a movie it was. 8/10.
