Movie Info

Love Free or Die is the true story about gay Bishop Gene Robinson whose two defining passions the world cannot reconcile: his love for God and for his partner Mark. It is about church and state, love and marriage, faith and identity-and one man's struggle to dispel the notion that God's love has limits. In the film, Gene Robinson becomes the first openly gay person to be elected bishop in the high church traditions of Christendom. Bishop Robinson confronts those who use religion as an instrument of oppression, and claims a place in the church and society, not just for LGBT people, but for all. By changing the church, he can change the world. -- (C) Official Site

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

This diffuse documentary lacks the urgency and reach of its staunch title.

Macky Alston's raggedly structured docu duly honors his subject's conviction and courage, but largely sidesteps conflict and skirts the issues in an unrevealing talking-heads format.

A thoughtful reflection on the divisiveness of homosexuality in organized religion, focusing on the quiet crusade of openly gay bishop Gene Robinson.

It not only forces us to examine our opinions, but it moves us to tears.

Audience Reviews for Love Free or Die


Inspiring and an important document of the civil rights battle. It's a wonderful film and highly recommended, but I wish it had an even broader message.
