Follow the incredible real-life tale of courage and commitment as an interracial couple fights for marriage equality in the case of Richard and Mildred Loving that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court in the drama Loving, starring Golden Globe nominees Joel Edgerton (Exodus: Gods and Kings) and Ruth Negga, with a supporting turn by Michael Shannon (The Runaways).

Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga are Richard and Mildred Loving in Loving

Richard and Mildred Loving 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 U.S. 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.

The Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD editions of the movie feature a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film and a commentary from writer/director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter).
