Focus Features has released the first official trailer for Loving, an inspirational film based on a true story. Written and directed by Jeff Nichols (Midnight Special, Mud), the cast is led by Joel Edgerton (The Gift, Black Mass) and Ruth Negga (Preacher, Warcraft)and includes Martin Csokas, Nick Kroll, and Michael Shannon. Loving is opening in limited cities on November 4, 2016 and will open in wider release later that month.

The Plot: From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
