Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.

What the critics are saying:
Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
Loving takes an understated approach to telling a painful -- and still relevant -- real-life tale, with sensitive performances breathing additional life into a superlative historical drama.
Adam Graham, Detroit News
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.
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
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.
Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
A beautiful film about daring to love, without fear or compromise.
