Saving Marriage - a Must See
16 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saving Marriage is a moving, emotional documentary on the struggle for civil gay marriage in Massachusetts. More generally it is a film about human rights and hopefully will be seen by a general public, not just the already convinced or the gay community.

If you've ever seen "Eyes on the Prize", a film about the Civil Rights Movement in the 50's and 60's, you will understand the tone and emotional power of "Saving Marriage".

This is not exactly your mainstream action flick, but it really holds your attention. The interviews were riveting. It's really top-notch documentary film making, and, as icing on the cake, illuminates an issue that should be of concern to all Americans who value human rights.
