Directed by Jeff Nichols and produced by Sarah Green, Loving is the story of Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred Loving (Ruth Negga), a couple whose arrest for interracial marriage in 1960s Virginia began a legal battle that would end with the Supreme Court's historic 1967 decision. The film premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and competed for the Palme d’Ore. Negga and Edgerton were both nominated for Golden Globes for their performances.
