Tragic (but ultimately redeeming) tale of an inter-racial couple in the 1960s deep south who were arrested for the 'crime' of getting married and having a family. It a stark reminder that things have not always been so 'free' in the land of milk and honey. Beauty of the film lie in the simplicity of the actors (as portrayed) in contrast to the enormity of their legislative fight which eventually go to the Supreme Court. Acting and performances by Ruth Nega and Joel Edgerton superb. The quiet , 'unfussy' love expressed between the central protagonists what essentially carry the narrative. Strong piece not just artistically but also for what it say about a dark chapter in American history.
