Focus Features Tuesday morning released the first trailer Jeff Nichols’ ‘Loving’ starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga.
‘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 film is written and directed by Jeff Nichols and also stars Marton Csokas, Michael Shannon, and Nick Kroll.
‘Loving’ will open in select theaters on November 4, and will expand across the country later in November.
