One of the best movies of 2016 is a love story that took on the rule that they can't love and in the process overturning a law that makes interracial marriage a crime. Jeff Nichols made this movie which traces the life of Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton with his neat crew cut and Ruth Negga) are a couple on is white and the other is African American. Richard is a brick maker who build houses out of bricks. One day the two decides to get married and they did without objection. One night, police show up and the couple were arrested. the crime: being married and those who are married of different race is declare illegal. therefore the state declare them criminals. So, they must fled the state where they live and live in Washington DC to raise their children. So they seek legal action of a ruling that would go before the Supreme and in 1967, they overturn the law. (sorry if I spoil the ending) This is a great movie about an overturn law which will lead to an overturn of anti-gay marriage laws some 48 years later. You need to see this movie. Very well made and acted.

A great story with great performances, that slows down almost to a halt extremely quickly. The movie just felt repetitive and boring. Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga were both wonderful in the leading roles, but they couldn't keep my from being bored.
