That laid-back, quiet style almost undersells the importance of the material here, although I prefer this approach rather than a heavy-handed one. It allows Edgerton and Negga to shine in their respective roles.

Loving tells the story of the first step towards marriage equality and serves as a tragic reminder that we've come a long way since then, but we as a nation still have a lot of work to do.

It is all about its main characters, and it has a lived-in quality, a sense of being there with them that stays with you a long time after the film ends.

Both Edgerton and Negga offer beautiful, sensitive performances that rely on flickering expressions, subtle body language, and vocal intonations to convey every semblance of emotion needed to bring the Lovings back to life.
August 30, 2018
Captures a truly powerful and moving story that is quiet with dialogue yet effectively loud with its message that still goes on to this day.

Loving is the kind of film the world needs right now.
August 27, 2018
With Loving, writer/director Jeff Nichols takes on an historical court case, one which has been dealt with on film before, in documentaries and a previous dramatization, but never with such a deft touch - or with such accuracy:

[Nichols] follows their quiet, long, and slow struggle to win that right.
August 21, 2018
"Loving" is a strong and moving film, subtle in its power and delivery and one that everyone should go to see.

Loving is Negga's movie, and she leads us into the complicated life of Mildred, with just a simple glance. Her eyes are expressive and hypnotizing and her voice-measured and melodic-delivers a knockout punch.

Under Nichols's direction, the film achieves the simplicity and perfection of certain silent films that pitted city life against country life as lovers were separated and reunited.

Jeff Nichols directs the most beautiful love story of the year. [Full review in Spanish]

... a touching, gentle portrait of a couple that, along the way, depicts their glancing interaction with the Civil Rights Movement.
December 26, 2017
Loving is a film that is surprisingly non-belligerent in tone, despite the outrageous injustice of its subject matter - America's historical treatment of race.

Loving is touchingly tender and one of the most emotionally moving films of 2016, all thanks to its extreme subtly

December 2, 2017
An historically accurate account of an almost 50 year-old watershed civil rights case. It's also an intimate drama about two people who risk their safety and liberty to be together.

While the court case alone could be a film in its own right, Nichols was wise to focus more on the love story.
November 12, 2017
Deals with interracial marriage without melodrama.

November 10, 2017
When an American film centers on a mixed-race couple, generally the relationship is framed as a problem. Nichols doesn't distract us from any moment of intimacy; he's canny enough to realize that his film is in his actors' faces.
October 16, 2017
The first half is absorbing and atmospheric, despite Edgerton rather overdoing his strong, silent, man-of-few-words portrayal.
