As you can see from the trailer below, Loving tells the story of an interracial couple who takes their right to be married in a horrible place and time all the way to the Supreme Court. It is an inspirational story for us all and the trailer may in fact make you cry a little:
On the other hand, this looks like (and with its November 4 release date, pretty much is) a blatant Oscar grab kind of movie. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing, though. The film definitely appears to be an actor showcase for Joel Edgerton (who appears to be playing his role as a Heatmiser-era Elliott Smith) and Ruth Negga. Meanwhile you have Michael Shannon and for some reason Nick Kroll. And finally a villain in the form of Marton Csokas, whose poor face will never know happiness in a movie.
So all in all, this seems like a nice, calm, emotional time at the movies, the kind of thing you can take Granny to, so long as your granny isn’t a racist.
