From IMDb: “Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple, are sentenced to prison in Virginia in 1958 for getting married.”

Poster Rating: C

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

Trailer Rating: B

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.

Oscar Prospects:

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.
