Three sentence movie reviews: The Loving Story

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews

This is the documentary on which Jeff Nichols based his movie Loving.  Watching it after having watched Loving, it felt repetitive, as the fictional movie follows this closely.*  I enjoyed the original media coverage and felt this was a solid documentary.**

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

*This is, of course, not the documentary’s fault.
**If you have no time for either the documentary or the movie, might I suggest Grey Villet’s photos from 1966?  Here’s a link.

    I think this might be on Netflix instant watch right now. I feel like I should watch one or the other (fictionalized account or documentary) but I’m not super interested in the topic.

      That’s my constant documentary problem. That sound great! But not great enough for me to get around to watching a documentary.

    It was interesting living in Virginia on Loving day. I had not heard of the couple until I lived there. Having that context (pre-movies/books) makes it a bit more interesting for me.
