Richard and Mildred Loving grew up in Caroline County, Virginia. In 1966 LIFE Magazine wrote: "The Lovings' white neighbors have grown accustomed to the marriage, and they encounter hostile stares only when they venture away ‘It makes me want to ask them what the hell they are staring at...I haven’t yet, but once we are allowed to live here legally, I will.’”
Both Edgerton and Negga are beyond extraordinary.
Joel Edgerton as Richard and Ruth Negga as Mildred give performances that will be talked about for years.
“Jeff’s script is so beautifully written. This is a story that gets into your heart and touches deep wells of feeling. ”
