Storyline

Over the last four decades, the concept of same-sex couples marrying went from a 'preposterous notion' to the national law. The Freedom to Marry movement is now known as one of the most successful civil rights campaigns in the modern history, but change did not arrive by happenstance. This victory was carefully planned and orchestrated over decades. THE FREEDOM TO MARRY, a new documentary film, offers the untold, inside story of this historic movement. This is a riveting ride alongside Evan Wolfson and Mary Bonauto, the architect and the main litigator of the movement, and their key colleagues from earliest days of their journey to their final frenetic dash to the US Supreme Court.

Fantastic Movie - See this!
4 March 2017 | by isaiahrosensteinSee all my reviews

As a college student I found this movie fantastically interesting and inspiring. Becoming an adult in a world as struggling as this one can seem overwhelming and scary. The Freedom to Marry is a film that makes change seem possible. It shows how each action that seems like just a drop in the bucket does make a difference and can when people come together and fight for something as ubiquitously precious as love, they can't be held back. The film is a triumph for love, empowering change, and understanding humanity that makes me, a college student, driven to improve this country and the world. In other words - can't recommend it enough.
