Amid the racial tension that boils over in the United States comes a film that explores the blindness of love in a callous world. Based on the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Loving v. Virginia, Loving follows the courtship and marriage of Virginians Mildred Jeter, a black woman, and Richard Loving, a white man. They were arrested and sentenced to prison in 1958, because their interracial marriage violated the state’s anti-miscegenation laws.
