To celebrate the release of the Oscar-nominated Loving, which arrived on Digital on 29th May and on Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on 12th June, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, we have two copies of the movie to give away on Blu-Ray.
Loving is the new film from acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special). Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed in the film by Golden Globe® nominees Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), fell in love and were married in 1958. The couple had grown up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C.
While relatives made them feel welcome there, the more urban environment did not feel like home to them. Ultimately, the pull of their roots in Virginia would spur Mildred to try to find a way back. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry. Richard and Mildred returned home and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
The Blu-ray™ and DVD features a revealing behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film and insightful commentary from writer/director Jeff Nichols.
