From acclaimed writer-director Jeff Nichols, LOVING celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (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 been an inspiration to couples ever since.

In this timely thriller, British colonel Katherine Powell (Helen Mirren) conducts a top-secret drone operation tracking terrorists in Kenya. When intelligence reveals the group is planning a suicide bombing, the mission becomes more urgent – and more fraught with complications when a 9-year old girl enters the kill zone. This riveting look at the moral ambiguities of modern-day warfare costars Aaron Paul, Barkhad Abdi and, in one of his final roles, Alan Rickman as Powell’s commanding officer.
