Powerful & gripping performances centering around the unassuming & humble Lovings, rural working class Virginians who took on the U.S. anti-miscegenation laws banning interracial marriage. Their case went all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court and changed the entire country.

Fantastic movie about real people. You can't help but love these characters and be drawn into their lives. Great story-telling!

Difficult to put myself in their shoes, but it must have been a very scary time for interracial relationships.

Good film, a bit on the slow side. I expected more passion from the leads.

A movie based on a true story...which is awesome...BUT the actress is someone who is half white of Irish descent... she looks mostly caucasian...which threw me off...

This movie is based on a true story! The movie could of been better if they would of delved in more about these two meek individuals who fought for civil rights and pioneered new laws and the way we think about love.

An important story told in an understated way, but without the racism to which the couple was no doubt subjected.

This is a completely underwhelming film that should have been much, much better. I completely blame the writer/director for muting down everything to the point that their struggle comes across as a mere inconvenience. Aside from the initial incident where wife spends the weekend in jail, and husband stays less than a day (WOW, BIG DEAL!), there is nothing that comes close to depicting the racism THAT PERMEATED our pre-Civil Rights South. Everyone, even the sheriff, seems sympathetic to their plight except for one outburst from the wife's sister. The husband has no trouble finding work; there are no rocks thrown through windows; no one gets beaten up standing up for equality; the ACLU swoops in and makes everything better, seemingly overnight.

This is the kind of wimpy, sugar-coated movie that reinforces the silly notion that black people didn't really have it that tough, especially not during one of the toughest periods in our history.
