Loving ★★★★

Jeff Nichols' most maturely directed film yet, though Take Shelter is still my favorite film of his. Definitely gonna be an Oscar contender: it'll probably get a Best Picture nomination, and I'd put money on Ruth Negga at the very least getting a Best Actress nom; well deserved too. It's not "Oscar bait," just a film with great intentions, impressively understated performances and subtle poignancy -- no oversentimentality or grand, expository dialogue.
