Loving

HBO | 8:00 pm

Jeff Nichols’ 2016 historical drama didn’t blow the roof off the North American box office, but it earned glowing reviews for its moving account of how mixed-race couple Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga) took their case to the Supreme Court after being held in violation of a Virginia law prohibiting interracial marriage. Both leads received Golden Globe nods for their performances; Negga also was nominated for an Oscar as best actress.
