After a long battle of fighting for their right to be together, Richard Loving (Joel Edgerton) and his wife, Mildred (Ruth Negga), are closer to the finish line than they’ve ever been. Though their lawyer Bernie Cohen (Nick Kroll) is hopeful for their success, Richard grows weary of the process and isn’t keen on testifying in front of the Supreme Court when Bernie suggests that it will help their case.
In 1958, in the state of Virginia, the idea of interracial marriage was not only considered to be immoral to many, it was also illegal. When Richard (Joel Edgerton, Black Mass) and Mildred (Ruth Negga, World War Z) fall in love, they are aware of the eyes staring at them and the words said behind their backs. It is when they get married, however, that words and looks become actions, and the two are arrested. The couple decide to take their case all of the way to the Supreme Court in order to fight for their love in this passionate and gripping drama that critics are calling “a masterpiece.” – Jason Gorber, ScreenAnarchy.com
