Here is the teaser poster for Austin director Jeff Nichols’ new film “Loving,” which premiered In Competition at the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival. “Loving” is a look at the struggle of Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), whose civil rights case, “Loving v. Virginia,” made Supreme Court history.
“Loving” will be in theaters across the country in November. Ruth Negga can also be seen in “Preacher,” which premiers Sunday on AMC.
Nichols most recent movie, “Midnight Special,” is terrific.
May “Loving” find a very different fate than its predecessor. I remain extremely cranky about how Warners rolled out “Midnight Special” and hope that it maybe makes a return to theaters in the late summer or fall, around Oscar-bat season.
