Jeff Nichols is the director of such films as Mud, Take Shelter and Midnight Special this time around hes tackling the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving played by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga. The film LOVING is an incredible true story and I had never heard of and I can guarantee after watching the film you will be all over Youtube watching real footage of this incredible couple and also just to think, this only happened 50 years ago..
Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew 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., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.
