Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple,
Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed in the film by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga),
who fell in love and were married in 1958.

The couple had grown up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more
integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of
Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and
then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city
of Washington, D.C. While relatives made them feel welcome there, the more urban
environment did not feel like home to them. Ultimately, the pull of their roots in
Virginia would spur Mildred to try to find a way back.

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. Richard and Mildred
returned home and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
