Today I am in Los Angeles for the Loving Press Junket! I’ll be screening the movie LOVING (I absolutely LOVE movies based on true stories…I think I may need a box of tissue). Afterwards, I’ll be interviewing Writer/Director Jeff Nichols and stars Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga. Follow @laughteachlove on all social media channels to see what’s happening today!
Richard and Mildred Loving’s story showed us that love is stronger than hate and has the power to spark real change. How will you stand up for LOVE? Love pushes ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols (“Take Shelter,” “Mud,” “Midnight Special”), LOVING celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (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.
Follow LOVING and help love change the world!
