We’ve got our hands on the first official trailer of Loving, the upcoming period drama movie written and directed by Jeff Nichols and starring Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga, Nick Kroll, Michael Shannon, Marton Csokas, and Jon Bass:
“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.”
Why would they deny this lovely couple the right to express their love? Stupidity runs high in mankind at times…
The film will hit theaters on November 4, 2016.
