The Loving Story Reviews

Alessandra Stanley

The tone of the film is solemn and pious, which seems almost inevitable when the topic is segregation and racial intolerance. But there are other reasons to watch this film besides feel-good expediency.

A low-key but moving documentary about two low-key people and their moving struggle.

The film strikes a quiet, contemplative tone that befits its soft-spoken subjects rather than the tumultuous times in which they lived.

The Loving Story is a different kind of 1960s civil rights tale, one that in many ways has a deeper level of warmth.

One of the many virtues of Buirski's film is that it doesn't hit viewers over the head with the parallel between the Lovings' case and the debate over same-sex marriage.

A thoughtful, terrifically intimate account of the case that dismantled this country's anti-miscegenation laws 100 years after the abolition of slavery.
