Loving (2016)

Film
Friday, February 17
6 pm
Cost: Free
An interracial couple challenge their anti-miscegenation arrest for their marriage in Virginia leading to a legal battle at the US Supreme Court.

USA | 123 min | PG-13 | DCP | Dir. Jeff Nichols

Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia. (IMDB)

"There are few movies that speak to the American moment as movingly — and with as much idealism — as Jeff Nichols’s Loving." - Manohla Dargis (The NYTimes)

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
