Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving, who married and then spent the next 9 years fighting for the right to live as a family. Their civil rights case. Loving V. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court. Director Nicholas (Mud, 2012) had access to documentary footage of the Loving’s home life from the mid-60s.
Loving received a standing ovation at its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2016
Thanks to Universal
Intimate, moving and superbly underplayed, "Loving" is every bit as soft-spoken and subtly implacable as its protagonists.
