LOVING — Film Release Date November 4th, 2016.
Loving is a 2016 British-American historical drama film directed and written by Jeff Nichols. It stars Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga as Richard and Mildred Loving, the plaintiffs in the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia, which invalidated state laws prohibiting interracial marriage. It was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. The film is to be released in the U.S. on November 4, 2016, by Focus Features.
The film follows the courtship and marriage of Mildred Jeter, a black woman, and Richard Loving, a white man. They are arrested and sentenced to prison in Virginia in 1958, because their interracial marriage violates the state’s anti-miscegenation laws. Exiled to Washington, D.C., they sue the state of Virginia in a series of proceedings leading to the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision in Loving v. Virginia, which holds that laws prohibiting interracial marriage are unconstitutional.
Loving is scheduled to be released on November 4, 2016. It will then be released in the United Kingdom on February 3, 2017.
