The Freedom to Marry

(Eddie Rosenstein, 2016, US, 86 min.)

One of the most surprising things about the same-sex marriage movement is that, actually, it was carefully planned and orchestrated over decades. The Freedom to Marry is an intimate and epic documentary which goes behind-the-scenes to reveal the inner workings and key players of this historic civil rights struggle. This is a riveting ride alongside Evan Wolfson, the man known as the architect of the movement, civil rights attorney Mary Bonauto, and their key colleagues as they wage their climactic battle before the United States Supreme Court, providing a fresh perspective on the movement's history along the way. This is a primer for social change and an inspirational tale of how people can actually make a difference.
