LOVING releases in theaters in November“Loving” celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who violated a state law that prohibited interracial marriage. The couple spent several years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown.

Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.

“This November, witness the love story that changed the world,” wrote Focus Features on their Facebook page.

“Loving” opens in theaters in select cities on November 4.

Check out the trailer for the film from acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols.
