Title: Loving
Rating: PG-13
Directed by: Jeff Nichols
Written by: Jeff Nichols
Starring: Ruth Negga, Joel Edgerton and Will Dalton
Release Date: 11/4/2016
Running Time: 123 minutes

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.

Risking everything, Roy is committed to helping Alton reach his ultimate purpose, whatever that might be and whatever it costs, in a story that takes audiences on a perilous journey from Texas to the Florida coast, while exploring the bonds of love and trust, and the nature of faith.
