Loving (2016) directed by Jeff Nichols   Loving est un film dramatique américano-britannique écrit et réalisé par Jeff Nichols sorti en 2016. Il traite de l’histoire du couple Loving à l’origine de l’arrêt de la Cour Suprême des États-Unis.

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.
