Lov­ing (PG) Jeff Ni­chols’s re­strained, qui­etly pow­er­ful film about the tru­elife at­tempts of mixed-race cou­ple Richard (Joel Edger­ton) and Mil­dred (Ruth Negga) Lov­ing to chal­lenge the an­timis­ce­gena­tion laws of the Com­mon­wealth of Vir­ginia in the late 1950s comes to the screen inevitably invit­ing com­par­isons with the same-sex mar­riage de­bate. The lead ac­tors are mag­nif­i­cent in the roles, es­pe­cially Edger­ton as the “white trash” builder’s labourer whose un­qual­i­fied love for his wife shines through his lack of com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.
