Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga ‘Loving’ Set for November Release
17 Mar 2016
We are excited to announce that Focus Features has given an awards-season release date to drama “Loving,” starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga.
Focus will open the film in limited release on Nov. 4 and then go wide on Nov. 11.
The film directed by Jeff Nicols is inspired by Nancy Buirski’s Emmy Award-winning documentary “The Loving Story” about Richard and Mildred Loving, a white man and African-American woman who fell in love and were married in 1958.
The couple was jailed by the state of Virginia, where they were making their home, and then banished from the state. The couple took the civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, all the way to the Supreme Court, which ruled in their favour.
