A behind-the-scenes look at the fight to legalize same-sex unions in America.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
After more than three decades of struggle, the same-sex marriage movement concluded one of the most successful civil rights campaigns in the world with a Supreme Court victory in June 2015. At its center was Evan Wolfson, the outspoken founder of advocacy organization Freedom to Marry. Eddie Rosenstein’s inspirational film follows Wolfson and attorney Mary Bonauto as the clock counts down to the Supreme Court decision, while recalling the victories – and setbacks – that set the stage for the landmark case.
