Joel Edgerton & Ruth Negga in Another Trailer for Jeff Nichols' 'Loving'
"I'm gunna raise my family here… I don't care what they do to us." Focus Features has unveiled a second trailer for the second Jeff Nichols film out this year, titled Loving, about Loving family from Virginia. The heartwarming film tells the story of the legendary interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving, played 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 town in Virginia. The cast includes Alano Miller, Martin Csokas, Nick Kroll, and Michael Shannon. I first saw this in Cannes and wrote in my review that it's a "a tender and heartfelt film." The trailers are as beautiful as the film itself, focusing on their love above all. Go see this film for the story, see it for the performances, see it to be reminded what true love is all about. Just don't miss this film.
Update: it turns out this is pretty much the same trailer as the first one - oh well. Sorry for the confusion.
Here's the second official trailer for Jeff Nichols' Loving, direct from Focus Features' YouTube:
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. Loving is written & directed by American filmmakers Jeff Nichols, of Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter, Mud and Midnight Special previously. This first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year (read my review). Focus Features will release Loving in theaters starting November 4th this fall. It's worth seeing.
