Review: Simple. Perhaps too simple. Yet, considering what the film is about, it works well enough.

Review: The worst part of this trailer is when the lawyer knowingly winks that perhaps their case might even end up at the Supreme Court. That’s a bit sloppy for a film. It’s weak writing. However, the scenes and events surrounding this lay out a film about a couple struggling to be accepted in a world in which they are despised. It may well resonate with a lot of audiences.
This is one of the year’s prime Oscar contenders. The story that led to one of the most important legal decisions in U.S. Supreme Court history could be a key player this year, especially if the Academy is looking to prove its diversity bona fides. Then, if it’s actually good, they won’t look like opportunists.
