Loving

This is a heck of a time for a movie like Loving. The historical drama/romance, from director Jeff Nichols, examines the lives of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial Virginia couple who were jailed for their marriage, and who won a 1967 Supreme Court case that declared any existing laws prohibiting interracial marriages as unconstitutional. It’s a story of civil rights, of the power and persistence of love, of the victory of human decency over hatred and prejudice. It’s positively brimming with the type of hope America needs right now. And it’s... kind of boring. Its love story, as graceful and lived-in as it feels, should have had a sharp point to it; instead it’s flat, fallow, and far too polite. Loving eschews the deliberate power of drama, making its two protagonists passive bystanders to their contributions to history.
