This period film, inspired by a landmark Supreme Court case, focuses on Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple living in segregated, 1950s Virginia, a state where miscegenation laws were still in place. Quietness hallmarks the storytelling, mirroring the silence of the Southern landscape. While the Lovings’ story is filled and fraught with legal battles to have their union recognized, filmmaker Jeff Nichols chose to focus the lens on the intimate connection they share. Critics hailed the Loving story as a quotidian, quiet love story that illustrates the American experience. (2K DCP Presentation)
