Description 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.

A very good documentary about the American view of same sex marriage and how it has been shaped over the years. The marriage equality movement is the most recent manifestation of this movement. Although the "freedom to marry" movement has been gaining ground over the last few years, the overall picture is still the same. As a filmmaker myself, I can tell you that the film is a very good representation of what is going on in the world. The documentary starts out with a group of same sex couples talking about the struggle they faced to be able to marry. It then goes on to the struggles of the two main protagonists, Eileen and Robert. Eileen, a single mother of a young child, is married to a man she has never met. Her marriage is only temporary, but her marriage is temporary. When she gets pregnant, she can't have the child, but her husband does not want to keep the baby. His reasoning is that he wants to raise the child himself. Eileen and Robert are now facing the choice of raising the child themselves or having the child be raised by someone else. The documentary doesn't go into detail about the couple's decision to not have the child raised by someone else. It is really their decision and they go with it. The film then goes into their decision to not raise the child themselves. It is a very emotional and heartfelt documentary. It is a good representation of the struggles of the two couples and the way the American view of same sex marriage has changed over time. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in the subject.
