Loving ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The interracial marriage of Richard and Mildred Loving challenges the segregation  laws and prejudice  of 1950’s America.

Delicate and understated, this tells a unique story without the major dramatic beats of a traditional Hollywood take on the material.

Significant contributions are the superb central performances by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga.

I guess for some Jeff Nichols’ film may be a little slow and rambling, but I found it convincingly portrayed people, who find themselves unwilling, but ultimately pivotal players in historical change.

This is their story and  by the  end  I was genuinely moved.
