The epic, nail-biting, untold story of how same-sex marriage became law of the land. THE FREEDOM TO MARRY follows Evan Wolfson, the architect the movement, civil rights attorney Mary Bonauto and their key colleagues on this decades long battle, culminating in a dramatic fight at the United States Supreme Court. More than the saga of one movement's history, this is an inspiring tale of regular people can actually win - and how activists can effectively change the minds and laws of the nation.

Peter Keough - BOSTON GLOBE
"THE FREEDOM TO MARRY breathes immediacy into marriage equality. The film is a definitive history of the course gay marriage took in the United States… nothing short of chilling."
Courtney Linder - PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE
"In the story about last year’s Supreme Court victory for the marriage equality movement, Wolfson emerges as both its hero and its heart … Despite the fact that viewers of the film will know how it ends, there is still a palpable feeling of suspense that takes hold as the final Supreme Court decision approaches."
Matt Wilstein - THE DAILY BEAST
"In a political climate in which all things progressive are at risk, the film is a reminder of the long and difficult work that victory took as well as a notification that no triumph can be taken for granted."
