Very Powerful - Everyone Should See This
16 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the privilege last night of not only seeing this movie, but having a Q & A session with the director as well. I've always supported homosexual marriage, but this film made me realize that we need to start pushing hard for it ASAP. Many people believe that homosexuals don't really "need" to marry, but this film completely dispels that myth. Homosexuals need the right to marry. And they need it as soon as possible. I'm not a big cryer in movies. Only one movie has ever made me cry (ironically, it was Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey). But I came very, very close multiple times. Not only did I almost cry at the case studies, but also at the shear joy displayed by so many in the countries where homosexuals have finally been allowed to marry. A U.S. citizen, I love my country dearly, but it has its flaws. One of its major flaws is that we're never exactly ahead of the game on civil rights. This film reminded me of that in brutal honesty.

See this movie, and tell your friends and elected representatives to see it as well. This could, and probably should, ultimately be remembered as one of the most important films of the decade.
