Reviews:
"LOVING is an unpretentious film about unassuming real people, but don't let that mislead you....A film of quiet but quite significant strengths." - 11/03/2016 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[I]t takes an incredibly talented trio of people in Nichols, Negga and Edgerton to convey that timelessness in a way that feels genuine." - 11/04/2016 RogerEbert.com


"Based on the heartbreaking but ultimately inspiring true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, Nichols’ marriage-equality drama is beautifully observed and quietly restrained." -- Grade: B - 11/03/2016 Entertainment Weekly


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Nichols has given us a quietly devastating film that resonates for the here and now and marches to the cadences of history and the heart." - 11/01/2016 Rolling Stone


"There are few movies that speak to the American moment as movingly -- and with as much idealism -- as Jeff Nichols’s 'Loving,' which revisits the era when blacks and whites were so profoundly segregated in this country that they couldn’t always wed." - 11/03/2016 New York Times


"[A] film of utmost sensitivity....It features two of the best American performances of the past several years..." - 05/16/2016 Variety


"LOVING is a quietly radical movie. A portrait of Richard and Mildred Loving, who became unwitting activists for interracial marriage when they wed in 1958, this gentle, deeply affecting story dispenses with the usual conventions of stirring appeals to the audience’s social conscience." - 11/10/2016 Washington Post


"The power of the film’s final act, where the Lovings finally have created a safe place for themselves and their children, cannot be exaggerated....By that point, the director’s subtlety, and Edgerton and Negga’s commitment to their characters’ emotional truth, has already conveyed the true heart of LOVING." - 11/04/2016 The Atlantic


"[T]he focus is firmly on the two people who share the name that gives the film its wonderfully neat title. Nichols is too quiet a talent to blare out a loud-and-worthy, awards-bait period piece." - 01/30/2017 Empire


4 stars out of 5 -- "In a film as subtle and low-key as Jeff Nichols’s Loving, it’s not surprising that the first thing you notice are the performances." - 02/05/2017 The Guardian
