Loving

(2016)

Based on a true story, this love story from writer-director Jeff Nichols (Mud) sees a white man (Joel Edgerton, Black Mass) and a black woman (Ruth Negga, World War Z) deeply in love in 1967 Virginia. They marry, construct a house, and build a life only to have the racially intolerant law force them to fight for their right to be together - a fight that would last years. Nominated for the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2016.
