“Loving” Tells The True Story Of The Marriage That Changed History

All the feels.

A trailer for the new film, Loving has been released and all we can say is grab some tissues and prepare for the waterworks.

After already receiving Oscar buzz following its premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Loving tells the true story of Mildred and Richard Loving, an interracial married couple who were persecuted for defying Virginia’s “anti-miscegnation” laws. Joel Edgerton (Midnight Special) and Ruth Negga (AMC’s Preacher) play the couple whose marriage would alter American history.

Their landmark 1967 Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia resulted in the SCOTUS ruling that barring people of different races to marry is unconstitutional. A similar ruling would happen 48 years later in the Obergefell v. Hodges case that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.

Watch the beautiful trailer below:

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
