4.0 out of 5 stars Important story lacking dramatic tension
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 14, 2017
The true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple whose marriage was deemed illegal in 1960s Virginia, is an undoubtedly important one that still resonates today. However, there's very little drama in this tale of two ordinary people who just happened to be a white man and a black woman in a place and time when the civil rights movement had yet to really take hold. It seems unsporting to criticise the pair for being so unremarkable, and it's admirable that the filmmakers didn't embellish the plot to make things seem more perilous, but the Lovings' story doesn't exactly make for a gripping cinematic experience.

It might've elevated things if the film had placed more emphasis on the Lovings' landmark case that saw the Supreme Court scrap America's racist anti-miscegenation laws, but these scenes are extremely brief, serving as little more than interludes in the portrayal of Richard and Mildred's day-to-day lives.

In its favour, Loving is beautifully filmed, with handsome cinematography and a strong sense of the era, but where the movie really shines is the casting: Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton are outstanding in the lead roles. Their take on the Lovings is totally convincing, with an easy on-screen chemistry that draws the viewer in. Negga's Best Actress Oscar nomination is well-deserved; she confidently holds her own against all of this year's other contenders. Just a shame this slightly over-long movie doesn't quite match up to the quality of these central performances.
