The First Trailer For “Loving” Is Incredible
We might make a lot of jokes about swirl, but it hasn’t been very long that mixed race couples were allowed to marry and live as man and wife. The true story of Richard and Mildred Loving is so touching and it looks as if the film will live up to all expectations. We were in tears just watching the trailer.
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.
