Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton play Mildred and Richard Loving, an interracial married couple jailed in 1960s Virginia for cohabitation. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Jeff Nichols movie without Michael Shannon.
Loving was well received at this year’s Cannes Festival, and Focus are releasing it stateside in November – right at the start of Oscar season. This could be the movie that sends Negga into the big leagues.
Loving is released on 3rd February 2017.
