Jeff Nichols is prolly one of the most underrated directors in hollywood. His narrative style may be a little bit slow at times, but his attention to details, poetic visuals and all rounded characters are what I see his biggest strengths. Loving is based on a true story of an interracial couple in 1960s US, whose arrest led to a battle v. Virginia State that would ultimately land the historic court decision to validate interracial marriage. Nichols retold the story with his typical tenderness, he did not try to overly dramatise the scenes nor did he try to heroise the Loving couple, for they were only ordinary couple whose love triumphed over racial barriers and societal norms - two lovebirds who wanted to marry not just to make a family, but to spend the rest of their lives together. To me, this is the most commendable part of their story, and what transcended the film from a documentary to a timeless tale.
