If Lovin’ You is Wrong…
Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred (Ruth Negga) fall in love and want to get married when Mildred finds out she’s pregnant. It’s 1958 in Carolin County, Virginia and interracial marriages are illegal. They drive to Washington, D.C. to get married where it is legal and return to Virginia. The state does not recognize the marriage and they are arrested. The Lovings story and their legal case goes to the U.S. Supreme Court and becomes a landmark case in marriage laws.
This is a movie everyone should see, it’s a reminder to us all how different and difficult life was for a large part of the population or for those who did not follow societal laws.
Compelling but flawed.
This HBO documentary is about a famous case that went to the Supreme Court back in the 1960s. It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Loving were different races and, believe it or not, back in 1958 when they married, such a mixed marriage was illegal in almost half the states in the US! The story about Mr. and Mrs. Loving is very, very compelling. You can’t help but be pulled into the film because they were so wronged by the state of Virginia. And, I loved the movie dramatization about them (“Mrs. and Mrs. Loving”). However, “The Loving Story” is good but flawed–mostly because the folks at HBO forgot to caption the film. While this always irritates me (since my daughter is deaf and I am somewhat hard of hearing), it’s more of a problem here because many of the clips used were old and heavily accented–and many folks would struggle to understand all of this. Being a Southern American would make understanding the accents easier. Overall, well worth seeing–but a bit flawed due to sound issues.
