The Los Angeles Times Asks Joel Edgerton to Explain the Lovings' Devotion to One Another
Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga and Jeff Nichols participate in The Los Angeles Times awards package "The Envelope".
The Times' Rebecca Keegan asks Edgerton to frame the love Richard and Mildred had for one another, "One thing he wasn't willing to do was divorce his wife. She was the one that looked beyond the boundaries and said 'Alright, how do we get beyond the confines the law has set up for us," offers Edgerton.
Joel's complete thoughts are up at The Los Angeles Times.
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. ”
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.
