Ethiopian-Irish actress Ruth Negga has delivered brilliant performances in movies that she has taken on. Loving, her new movie in which she casts opposite Australian actor Joel Edgerton proved her worth as she put in an outstanding performance.
Her performance has been collecting huge reviews and many movie critics believethat she is in line for an Oscar nomination, for her steady performance in Loving.
The movie, loving, is based on the story of Richard and Mildred Loving who are racially married. The couples, post their marriage are arrested because marriage between different races was a crime back in 1958. The movie is directed by Jeff Nichols and is inspired by 2011 HBO documentary The Loving Story.
Various movie critics have come up and admired the performance that the casts, especially Negga, have given in the movie. Speaking about Negga’s performance USA Today went on to say, ”As Mildred, she fuels much of the film’s emotion, sitting in jail pregnant, dealing with relatives divided on whether her love is worth being in quasi-exile, and needing to return to farm life for the good of her kids.”
The movie is set to release on Friday, November 4th, 2016. The critics remain positive that this movie is surely likely to put Ethiopian-Irish actress Negga in contention for the Oscar awards.
