Critic Reviews for Political Animals

All Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • The documentary doesn't feel much more than a flat retelling of the history of same-sex marriage and would dry up without its four central personalities.

  • We champion the recent marriage equality act, but it's right to focus on the long, painstaking road that got us to this point in time.

    November 3, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This is important, essential viewing- and as positive as the outcomes here are, it is still a vital reminder of the important LGBT rights issues that need to be addressed in the regressive Trump era. This film is needed now more than ever.

  • The back-and-forth takes on an almost debate-like quality that only heightens the absurdity of the hate speak featured within. A modern day reunion is perhaps under-utilised, but the footage that is featured is powerful stuff.

  • I was enlightened; I was better for seeing it.
