We saw "Loving" yesterday. What a wonderful movie. Two thumbs up from our house.

It is the story of Mildred and Richard Loving, and their legal fight to live together as a married couple. They were an interracial couple that lived in rural Virginia where it was illegal at the time for interracial couples to marry or live together. They were married in Washington, DC in 1958 but stayed in VA, and were arrested. Mildred wrote to Bobby Kennedy about their troubles and he passed the case to the ACLU. Eventually the case made it to the Supreme Court and a landmark decision for marriage equality.

It's a wonderful story; well written and wonderfully acted. We really enjoyed the movie, and appreciated the story.
