This documentary takes a concerted look at the heated and ongoing debate about same-sex marriage in the United States. Focusing on two gay couples who've become entangled in laws forbidding homosexual wedlock, the film puts a human face on the issue. Included are interviews chronicling marriage's evolution through the centuries and a discussion by proponents, who debunk the arguments against gay unions. Jim de Seve directs.
Netflix Rating: 3.4
This clear-sighted documentary on the issue of gay marriage has the good sense to take a large step back from the emotional debate surrounding the issue and scrutinize the history of marriage itself.
