A Simple Wish: "We have thought about other people, but we are not doing it just because somebody had to do it and we wanted to be the ones. We are doing it for us - because we want to live here." Richard Loving, c. 1966

Joel Edgerton told PEOPLE Magazine "[T]he greatest tragedy in this story is the couple's inability to have any avenues at first to escape this situation, and so they were robbed of time….Yes, they got to stay together, and yes they had three beautiful children - but they were told where to live and they were robbed of the freedom of time they had to spend with their extended family, and that I felt very sad about."
