Loving

If not for its director is Jeff Nichols, author beyond suspicion thanks to a filmography that includes magnificent works like ‘Shotgun Stories’, ‘Take Shelter’ or ‘Mud’, it would be tempting to assume that ‘Loving’ has been specifically designed Everybody Wants Some with the aim of winning prizes. After all, at first glance, it seems to have the same high-end film quality as the films of, say, a greedy director of oscars like Tom Hooper. It recreates a historical fact of relevance still in force, and it does so by spreading tact and elegance and using a narration that is conventional. The difference is that Nichols does not immodestly cackle about the importance of his film. Quite the opposite.

Loving ‘, in any case, is the kind of film that comes The Circlev to light only because it tells a true story and not because that story fulfills particularly well with certain narrative requirements. We explain: Nichols tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, a mixed couple – he was white, she was black – who got married illegally in 1958, which forced her to choose between jail or exile, and that over time he undertook a legal battle that, nine years later, ended with the prohibition of interracial couples throughout the United States. No matter how you look at it, the Loving people were brave and decent and worthy of admiration. Now, the one they brought was a life apparently full of drama, but not a particularly dramatic life.

Nichols presents them as two happy people to be alone with each other and with their children, and as far as possible from public notoriety or social militancy. It would not have been necessary at the end of the film for a text on black to inform us that the Loving did not like to consider themselves heroes; that is crystal clear, thanks to Miracles from Heaven the tendency of the director to focus on the downtime of the couple and the quiet wandering of their domestic life. It is in those non-moments where the best of ‘Loving’ resides. Films about historical events often include scenes in which the violins and the trumpets begin to sound full-blown from the soundtrack while the characters embrace in slow motion surrounded by people who cheer. ‘Loving’ works differently. It does not include final speeches, big gestures or sentimental dialogues. The ‘Loving’ were not that kind of people and, consequently, their history should not have that kind of pomp.
