In this latest film from Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special), Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga star as real life couple Richard and Mildred Loving, arrested in their home state of Virginia in 1958 for their interracial marriage. A gentle, unassuming couple that shunned the spotlight, they nonetheless spent decades in the courts (with the assistance of numerous civil and human rights organizations) fighting for recognition of their marriage. Writer/director Nichols allows the story to unfold from the point of view of the Lovings, immersing viewers in their deep roots in home and family ties. Loving is a remarkable story, beautifully realized with riveting performances by Edgerton, and Negga. (USA, 2016)
