New Trailer: Jeff Nichols’ “Loving”

Focus Features has unveiled a new trailer for “Midnight Special” writer/director Jeff Nichols’ interracial marriage drama “Loving”. Based on a true story, Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga star as a Virginia couple who went up to Washington D.C. to get married, then faced intense discrimination in their home state given that interracial marriage was against the law at that time.

They were subsequently forced to leave the state (and their families) and never return, but eventually launched a lawsuit against the state (at the behest of the ACLU) that resulted in the Supreme Court affirming interracial marriage as a right guaranteed by federal law. The film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year and will hit cinemas on November 4th.
