This Proposal in Loving Will Break Your Heart

The emotional real life drama of Richard and Mildred Loving is destined to be the love story of the year. Loving portrays the couple’s romance that led to a 1967 Supreme Court victory overturning U.S. laws prohibiting interracial marriage. 

Focus Features released a tearjerking clip from the film today. Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga are way too adorable as the lovestruck couple. The one-two punch of Richard secretly buying the land for their future home and asking Mildred to marry him will be too much for your tear ducts to contain. Although we know the couple eventually gets hitched, we absolutely cannot wait to see her answer. 

Loving comes to theaters November 4.
