The Washington Ideas Forum will host an early screening of the highly anticipated Focus Features film “Loving.” This is one of the first showings outside of the film festival circuit, and comes five weeks before the film's November release. From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, the film tells the story of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), whose fight for marriage equality made history. “Loving” follows the couple over the course of a decade leading up to the landmark Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court case. Prior to the screening, we'll host a discussion on the legacy of the case.
