HBO's The Loving Story

I'm intrigued by this slice of bittersweet American history. It seems like the kind of story that, when fictionalized, would become Oscar-bait for its starring actors. Something like The Help. Regardless of that, I'm curious to see what fresh point-of-views the director uncovered in this real-life saga.
The Loving Story is a documentary about Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple living in Virginia in the 1950s, and their landmark Supreme Court Case, Loving v. Virginia, that changed history.
It premieres Feb. 14th (Valentine's Day) on HBO at 9pm.

I saw this at the Bronze Lens Festival in ATL a few months ago. It is a really good doc. Such a great story. There is a TV movie based on their story called "Mr. and Mrs. Loving" with Lela Rochon and Timothy Hutton. It came out in 1996. But I have never seen it. But I agree, this is the type material that The Academy loves.
