Great film. Though I thought Ruth Negga had very little to say in the first hour. Felt like most of the talking was been done by the leading actor. When she did have a few words to say they were short and done with in seconds. Nominated for best female actress? Can't see it happening because of the lack of lines they gave her in the film. Overall the film is great to watch. Worth the 2 hours it goes on for. Enjoyable film. If sad in parts. Ending was easy to guess. No big surprises there at all. If you are looking for a good film to go see this weekend, this would be my pick.
While I appreciate what this film is trying to do - and it is a timely reminder on being tolerant and open minded, I'm pushed to appreciate the film itself. If you like films that contains numerous scenes of people giving each other tearful hugs then bring the hankies, you'll love it. Maybe, the film is dealing with people who wanted to go about their lives and they had greatness trust upon them. The Loving couple are quite passive, they endure the vile racist slurs of the police and judiciary. It's only when a relative recommends they write to Bobby Kennedy that the forces of ignorance are challenged. This film passed me by, I feel the same about Mr & Mrs Loving; events happened around them. There are no stirring speeches or scenes where the racists are exposed for the hate mongers that they are.
