So last night I went to a screening of Loving. It was released on November 4th but since LA is behind the times, it won’t be released here until the 23rd. Loving is about Richard and Mildred Loving who challenged the state of Virginia for their right to be married since interracial marriage was outlawed in the state during that time.
I wish I could say I loved the movie (cheesy, I know lol), but I didn’t. I definitely liked it, but didn’t love it like I thought I would every time I saw the previews over the past few months. It was very slow which made it feel like it was longer than the 2hr 3min run time.
The performances were good, except for Mildred’s sister. I didn’t like her acting or character too much. She seemed too modern for the movie she was in. Everyone else made me believe they were really living in 1958 Virginia, whereas she gave me more of a 1985 kind of vibe.
There’s not much more to say about this movie. Everyone knows the story and how it ends. In conclusion, If asked if I think its worth seeing, i’d say yes.
Kylie’s Rating: B-
