TRAILER: Loving

Vanity Fair recaps:

Sick of the summer box-office doldrums? Focus Features is here to bolster your belief in important, non-franchise filmmaking with the first trailer for Loving, a powerful biopic about Richard and Mildred Loving—the interracial couple who changed the course of American history by fighting for their right to be married in the 1960s.

From filmmaker Jeff Nichols, Loving was one of the breakout premieres at the Cannes Film Festival. Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga star as the titular couple, who married in Washington, D.C., only to be arrested for violating Virginia’s anti-miscegenation law shortly after.
