Jeff Nichols Talks with Fast Company
Fast Company spends an afternoon with Loving writer/director Jeff Nichols as a part of their Co.Creatives Exclusives series.
The package offers a unique angle and platform and allows Mr. Nichols to talk through how he, both as writer and director, created today's version of both the Loving story and American during the time of their struggle.
"I didn't want to just create things for the sake of creating them...while that, in a way, added confines to the narrative structure it was oddly framed because I knew I wasn't going to stray too far from the truth."
A really interesting piece over at Fast Company.
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. ”
Ruth Negga: remember the name. It's been a long time since an actor/actress has me so unapologetically in the bag. This woman is something special...
They weren’t martyrs, and didn’t want to be. They weren’t symbols, and didn’t want to be. They were two people in love who wanted to be with each other and their family.
