March MIFF Members' Screening: Loving

From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols (Mud, Midnight Special), Loving tells the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, who fell in love and married in 1958, defying Virginia’s laws against interracial marriage. Driven by powerful performances from Joel Edgerton and Academy Award-nominee Ruth Negga, Loving is a beautifully crafted, warm-hearted film.
