Straightforward doc offers balanced look at same-sex marriage battle.
Nowadays, when the very notion of impartiality seems quixotic at best, few issue-driven docus even pay lip service to the other side. Fox and Nubile's observational fly-on-the-wall approach proves relatively objective.
There is a lot of reasoned opinion here, and an equal amount that may not be reasoned but is certainly heartfelt.
| Original Score: 3/5
Looks at the marriage battle waged by Maine voters.
The film attempts to fairly portray all sides of the debate, following both pro- and antimarriage activists from the first days of the campaign through a suspenseful election night.
An often fascinating examination of politics-as-personal.
There is a large amount of nonsense uttered here, but the filmmakers trust you to recognize it and reject it without their coaching.
