The Freedom To Marry

Directed by Eddie Rosenstein

The Freedom To Marry still

US, 2016, 86 min, in English

The epic, nail-biting, untold story of how same-sex marriage became law of the land. THE FREEDOM TO MARRY follows Evan Wolfson, the architect the movement, civil rights attorney Mary Bonauto and their key colleagues on this decades long battle, culminating in a dramatic fight at the United States Supreme Court. More than the saga of one movement's history, this is an inspiring tale of how regular people can actually win - and how activists can effectively change the minds and laws of the nation.

“A blueprint for the continuing civil rights challenges of our time.”
