Rapid Reviews | ‘Loving’

When does an Oscar contender not feel like ‘Oscar Bait?’ When it’s Loving, a new drama based on the Supreme Court case that made mixed-race marriages legal across the United States, and which paved the way for same-sex marriage equality 50 years later. It may be a serious story about a serious topic with seriously great performances, so why doesn’t it feel like all the other melodramas that come out year after year?
