From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by 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.

“The real artistry of Loving… is in the quiet grace Negga and Edgerton bring to one of recent history’s most important romances.” -USA Today

“It doesn’t trumpet its importance obnoxiously, and it’s packed with performances of quiet power, with Negga as the breakout.” -BuzzFeed News
