Captures a truly powerful and moving story that is quiet with dialogue yet effectively loud with its message that still goes on to this day.

Loving is the kind of film the world needs right now.

With Loving, writer/director Jeff Nichols takes on an historical court case, one which has been dealt with on film before, in documentaries and a previous dramatization, but never with such a deft touch - or with such accuracy:

[Nichols] follows their quiet, long, and slow struggle to win that right.

"Loving" is a strong and moving film, subtle in its power and delivery and one that everyone should go to see.

Loving is Negga's movie, and she leads us into the complicated life of Mildred, with just a simple glance. Her eyes are expressive and hypnotizing and her voice-measured and melodic-delivers a knockout punch.

Under Nichols's direction, the film achieves the simplicity and perfection of certain silent films that pitted city life against country life as lovers were separated and reunited.

Jeff Nichols directs the most beautiful love story of the year. [Full review in Spanish]

... a touching, gentle portrait of a couple that, along the way, depicts their glancing interaction with the Civil Rights Movement.
December 26, 2017
Loving is a film that is surprisingly non-belligerent in tone, despite the outrageous injustice of its subject matter - America's historical treatment of race.
December 5, 2017
Loving is touchingly tender and one of the most emotionally moving films of 2016, all thanks to its extreme subtly
December 2, 2017
An historically accurate account of an almost 50 year-old watershed civil rights case. It's also an intimate drama about two people who risk their safety and liberty to be together.

While the court case alone could be a film in its own right, Nichols was wise to focus more on the love story.
November 12, 2017
Deals with interracial marriage without melodrama.
November 10, 2017
When an American film centers on a mixed-race couple, generally the relationship is framed as a problem. Nichols doesn't distract us from any moment of intimacy; he's canny enough to realize that his film is in his actors' faces.

The first half is absorbing and atmospheric, despite Edgerton rather overdoing his strong, silent, man-of-few-words portrayal.
October 2, 2017
Despite this aesthetic morass, Edgerton and Negga's performances are brilliantly crafted, and nearly offset some of the film's more heavy-handed interludes.
September 27, 2017
Loving is as good as a drama can be, but for everyone who admires the director's earlier films, it might be a disappointment.
September 21, 2017
Critics can whine all they like. There's little doubt that thousands will be moved by Loving's success in depicting a couple's quiet heroism-and the performances that will help to enshrine their legacy.
September 20, 2017
Nichols lets the drama play out on his characters faces rather than through their words. I've seen it twice and I was just as moved the second time as the first.
