      Audience Member before the recent 'Loving' there was the Hallmark TV version from 1996 it's a more bright, colorful, innocent take on the famous Loving couple that faced backlash from Virginia that outlawed interracial marriage they definitely go over more of the details that the 2016 version skimmed over I got a bit teary eyed during the middle knowing how much certain people were willing to break Mildred and Richard apart and of course they face all sorts of challenges from leaving their home to finding work to having more kids to going as far as to the Supreme Court to legally change the Constitution of the United States Lela Rochon and Timothy Hutton are excellent together; despite looking nothing like the real Mildred and Richard Loving they expertly play two people in love trying their hardest to not let anything interfere with what they have this is their own civil rights they feel is being violated and all they want to do is wake up every day not worrying about what other people would do to them because of the color of their skin even the speech broadcast of Martin Luther King is amazingly inserted in here to strengthen the message whether it's the 1960's or present day we must still strive for equality in love, despair, and everything else love is love and that union should not be limited to anyone of any race Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a MUST c movie!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member made for cable feel with a dull script, but it gets better towards the middle. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved the movie it was just perfect if that word even dose it just Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member I found out about this supreme court case, and I thought it was so romantic that they fought for their love on a social, and legal level. Timothy Hutton and Lela Rochon portrayed the Lovings beautifully, they were very believable and really brought the story to life. Definitely worth seeing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member This show was so good, there love for each other and her innocence almost made me cry. Enjoyed it.
