The St. Andrews Film Society Presents: “Loving” (2016 PG-13)
October 15, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Directed by Jeff Nichols, Loving (UK/US., 123 min., 2016, rated PG-13) celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which, in 1967, reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since. Loving takes an understated approach to a painful, and still relevant – real-life tale, with sensitive performances breathing additional life into a superlative historical drama.
