Friday night, Sharon and I watched Loving. This is part of our continuing effort to see all of films nominated for Oscars in the major categories. When we first started to try and figure out which films might be nominated in November, there was a lot of talk about Loving. It faded and received only one nomination: Ruth Negga for Best Actress.

The film tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving. They were the plaintiffs in the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia that invalidated state laws prohibiting interracial marriage. Joel Egerton stars as Richard Loving, with Ruth Negga co-starring as Mildred Loving.

It is an interesting film that is billed as being very historically true. The first half is very slow. Personally, I think that Amy Adams should have gotten a Best Actress nomination for Arrival, rather than Negga getting nominated for this film...
