ABOUT THE FILM

 

From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry—and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.

Mr. Nichols's most distinct aesthetic choice is the movie's quietness and the hush that envelops its first scene and that eventually defines the Lovings as much as their accents, gestures, manners and battles. He wraps them in a deep-country quiet, the kind that can unnerve city people and sound—feel—utterly foreign, especially to ears habituated to the noise of American movies with their therapeutic chatter. There's beauty in this silence, as when Mildred closes her eyes as the wind stirs the trees.

—Manohla Dargis, New York Times

Among the myriad ironies that animate Loving, perhaps the most cutting is when an official accuses Richard and Mildred of threatening "the peace and dignity of the commonwealth": It's difficult to imagine anyone more gracefully embodying those very principles. Intimate, moving and superbly underplayed, Loving is every bit as soft-spoken and subtly implacable as its protagonists. It lives up to its title as a noun and a verb, with elegant, undeniable simplicity.

—Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

ABOUT THE FILM

 

Mack the Knife is back in town.

A darkly comic new take on Brecht and Weill's raucous musical broadcast live from the stage of the National Theatre.

London scrubs up for the coronation. The thieves are on the make, the whores on the pull, the police cutting deals to keep it all out of sight. Mr and Mrs Peachum are looking forward to a bumper day in the beggary business, but their daughter didn't come home last night and it's all about to kick off...

With Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear (Hamlet, Othello, James Bond), as Macheath alongside Rosalie Craig (As You Like It, My Family and Other Animals) as Polly Peachum and Haydn Gwynne (The Windsors, Drop the Dead Donkey) as Mrs Peachum. This bold, anarchic production is brought to you by a creative powerhouse; adapted by Simon Stephens, (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time), and directed by Rufus Norris (Everyman, London Road).
