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.

Riveting Doc - so timely!
18 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I saw F2M in December as a special showing/fundraiser and it was riveting. The theater was full with people needing a reminder that change is possible and change will happen. The documentary felt like a slow, unfolding mystery. Even though I knew how it would end, though, the way it got there was the real story. Like All The President's Men, this was the story of how a story became a story.

The pacing was perfect: detailed, personal, telling multiple stories at once. Really fun to watch and such an important reminder of what people can do despite a political climate. Love can win.
