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.

The film shines a light on how far the U.S. has come in its views of equality, but also how far it has still to go. A true story that is still very relevant, Loving is understated, compelling and deeply affecting.

This could be the synopsis of a mediocre "inspirational" telemovie, but Nichols is a very deliberate artist, and Loving is as carefully made as anything he has done.

It's a touching and honest film.

What is radical about Nichols's film is the extent to which he focuses not on the legal fight and ensuing national attention but on the Lovings themselves.

Nichols is one of today's finest rural storytellers, and he never wavers in his approach, going small where others would go grandiose. "Loving" is an exercise in restraint befitting the quiet couple at its center.

A beautiful film about daring to love, without fear or compromise.

Watch how Edgerton's Joel, a stoic man of few words, puts an arm around Mildred without seeming to think about it, naturally wanting her near; watch how Negga lets her performance speak through her expressive eyes, always looking for Richard.
November 15, 2016
A resplendent and remarkably subtle, yet deeply affecting, drama about the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court decision that invalidated state laws prohibiting interracial marriage.
November 12, 2016
Effectively acted and occasionally moving, the film both benefits from and is undermined by writer/director Jeff Nichols' no-frills approach to the circumstances leading up to the court case.
November 11, 2016
Filmmaker Jeff Nichols (Mud; Take Shelter) has recreated the world lived in by Richard and Mildred Loving for a new feature film made with authenticity and laudable restraint.
November 11, 2016
A pair of solemn, unostentatious performances by Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton help to raise the bar just slightly higher than the one set by a benignly routine Lifetime movie.
November 11, 2016
Negga and Edgerton make these noble people three-dimensional, turning a docile, unambitious couple with neither the self-knowledge nor the words to launch a social revolution into unlikely protagonists in the civil-rights movement.
November 10, 2016
The cinematography, the set design, the costumes, the overall feel of Loving: all first-rate. Negga and Edgerton are undeniably good. I was impressed. I just wish I'd been more deeply moved.
November 10, 2016
Writer/director Jeff Nichols serves history faithfully, if at times with too much deference, in a handsomely mounted dramatic recalling of a landmark U.S. legal battle.

I like this movie a lot, but it may be too intimate, too slow for some moviegoers. The approach feels organic and wholly intentional, though ...
November 10, 2016
Intimate, moving and superbly underplayed, "Loving" is every bit as soft-spoken and subtly implacable as its protagonists.
November 10, 2016
This is a drama, but it's also a horror story.
November 10, 2016
Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga are exceptional.
November 10, 2016
Despite the confrontational nature of the subject matter, Loving is not a loud movie. It's a dramatic whisper instead of a shout.
