||Synopsis: A racially-charged criminal trial and a heart-rending love story converge in this documentary about Richard and Mildred Loving, set during the turbulent Civil Rights era. Long Way Home: The Loving Story is a story of love and the struggle for dignity set against a backdrop of historic anti-miscegenation sentiments in the U.S. The Lovings, an interracial couple, fell in love and married at a critical time in American history, and, because of a confluence of social and political turmoil our reluctant heroes bring about change where previously no one else could. They are paired with two young and ambitious lawyers who are driven to pave the way for Civil Rights and social justice through an historic Supreme Court ruling, changing the country's story forever.

This documentary is about the 1967 landmark U.S. Supreme Court case
striking down anti-miscegenation statutes as unenforceable under the
I read about Loving v. Virginia in law school and marveled at the
bravery of the couple in question (a white man and black woman) who
were prosecuted for leaving their home state of Virginia to marry in
D.C. and then returning to Virginia where they were harassed by law
enforcement and ultimately prosecuted as felons for miscegenation.
The documentary (which consists almost entirely of contemporaneous
black and white footage) offers (and needs) little narration as the
Lovings and their attorneys describe the events that led to the
historical legal ruling.
While interracial marriage attracts little notice in most populous
areas of America today, at the time the Lovings were prosecuted (1958)
21 states had anti-miscegenation statutes on their books. (Indeed,
notwithstanding the 1967 decision, the last state to repeal its
anti-miscegenation law was Alabama in 2000.) I saw the film at the
Tribeca Film Festival tonight and as a wonderful bonus, the Lovings'
youngest child, Peggy Loving Fortune, appeared and shared her personal
feelings and recollections. (Her parents are deceased; Mrs. Mildred
Jeter Loving died of pneumonia in 2008, and Mr. Richard Loving died in
a automobile accident in 1975.) The film was made in part by HBO, so
perhaps HBO will air it at some point.
