When a trailer makes me start to get teary-eyed, I just know I will be all-out crying during the full movie. That’s the case with Loving, the story of the interracial couple whose case went all the way to the supreme court to challenge anti-miscegenation laws.
The first Loving trailer has just been released. Take a look:
From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed 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 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 will open in theaters in select cities on November 4, and will expand across the country later in November.
