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.

Even if this is the same trailer, this still looks like it is going to wreck me.

Movies like this make me embarrassed for the human race. How they could be so stupid, and how so many continue to be just as stupid and hateful. Performances seem good.

I made the mistake of watching this on youTube and glanced at the comment section there ... holy crap! If you want to read what the most ignorant of our society thinks, check it out. In summation, it's basically "Hollywood Jews make films like this as propaganda to further kill the white race which is a minority in the world today" I would laugh at the ridiculousness of those sentiments if I didn't know people actually think this way. And honestly it's hard to take it seriously sometime because I'm hispanic and married to a white girl and I've never personally experienced racism or even witnessed it to the degree of these comments. I'm with you DAVIDPD, this is going to wreck me too.

"Tell the judge I love my wife". That brought me to tears! The trailers brought me to tears! I can't even imagine how much of a sniffling little baby the movie will bring me to. I will see this and I will cry over the pure love and dedication between these two and I will rage over the blind hate they faced and overcame.

Should've just listened to the audio since I couldn't see half the trailer through my tears anyway.
