Loving Trailer

"I'm going to raise my family here; I don't care what they do to us." Focus Features has unveiled the first beautiful full trailer for Jeff Nichol's new film Loving, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. The 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 small town in Virginia. The cast includes Alano Miller, Martin Csokas, Nick Kroll, and Michael Shannon. I saw this in Cannes and was moved to tears. I wrote in my review that it's a "a tender and heartfelt film. It relies so much on the relationship between them and how beautiful that is to see - there are no questions about their love, only about those who challenge it." Yes indeed… Take a look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Jeff Nichols' Loving, direct from Focus' YouTube:

Loving Poster

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.

Some places in America were and are disgusting.

you spelled "the World" wrong

No I didn't.

You should probably watch the news then or maybe something on world history so you're less ignorant. I can't imagine being as clueless as you to think that the US is somehow unique in this way. (probably a Sanders supporter)

Say whatever you want to make your self feel better. Already trying to label some one you don't know. My comment was only concerning the movie, not the world. You do not have to call some one ignorant because they won't engage with you. Also, trying to label some one "--- supporter" is just sad and only shows who the really ignorant person is here.

The movie is about a place and time in AMERICA. So, he's absolutely correct. I see your point, but to make such a broad generalization and call him ignorant, is just childish. (probably a trump supporter)

You spelled "the Universe" wrong.

You can say that about any place.

It's hard to believe these events happened for real in the USA in a not too distant past.

Looking at recent events and the upcoming election, it doesn't seem that long ago at all. Sorry to bring up politics.

Charles Knowlton on Jul 15, 2016


I know exactly what you mean.

Ruth Negga is fantastic. Loved her work in "Agents of Shield".

That seems to be good making of now all too familiar story about the race, individual destines and the society facing those ...
