Follow the incredible real-life tale of courage and commitment as an interracial couple fights for marriage equality in the case that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court in Loving.
The Focus Features movie is nominated for two Golden Globe® Awards: Best Actor [Drama] (Joel Edgerton) and Best Actress [Drama] (Ruth Negga).
Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed in the film by Golden Globe® nominees Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), 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.
Loving is available now on Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital and On Demand, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
