In 1958, white construction worker Richard Loving drives his African-American girlfriend Mildred to Washington, where they elope. Arrested upon return to Caroline County, the newlyweds choose to fight the charges in court, leading to a historic legal battle in the Civil Rights Movement.

MUBI's take

Starring alongside Joel Edgerton (Master Gardener), Ruth Negga simply shines in Jeff Nichols’ bruisingly tender, Palme d’Or-nominated drama about a couple’s historic struggle to be left to love. With Nichols’ typical understated direction, Loving leaves a lump in your throat that’s hard to ignore.
