Wonderful movie
15 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was difficult for me to watch because it made me so emotional. It realistically shows the struggle of gay couples in America. An extremely powerful movie that makes me stand even firmer behind my convictions that same sex marriage should be legal. My favorite story was the one about Sam and Earl--partners for twenty-five years before Earl became ill and died. They build their house and farm from the ground up and raised children together and were devoted to each other in every way, but Earl's cousins were able to nullify his will and take possession of the land that Earl and Sam put their life's blood into. What a tragedy that this was able to happen--this is the reason why same-sex marriage should be legal. Sam and Earl were as much in love as any straight couple. They deserve equal rights under the law.
