Photo Flash: Cynthia Erivo, Nick Kroll & John Mulaney Host Special Holiday Screening of LOVING
Focus Features has shared photos from yesterday's special holiday screening of LOVING at the Tribeca Screening Room. THE COLOR PURPLE's Cynthia Erivo co-hosted the event alongside LOVING costar Nick Kroll and John MULANEY from Broadway's OH HELLO! for members and couples of the Broadway community. The event concluded with an intimate reception at the Tribeca Grill after the screening. LOVING is now playing in theatres across the country.
From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, LOVING celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed by Golden Globe Award nominees Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown.
Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry - and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
