Audience Reviews for Saving Marriage

  • Jan 12, 2011
    I'm torn: I want to extol the virtues of Saving Marriage on purely my personal beliefs, but I can't give it an unqualified recommendation as a movie. Why? There's something...off...about it as the story of Massachusetts allowing gay marriage is told. Small technical issues like the lack of date stamps and the way the narrative seemingly skips from the marriage fight to an election fight had me scratching my head more than once. However, this is a compelling story obviously centered on the pro-gay side of the debate. It certainly plays on emotions, which most documentaries do, but never manages to have the two sides sit down to just talk without the rhetoric. That is squarely because of the real time nature of the film. And when a key legislator changes his vote at the last minute, it almost comes out of nowhere for the same reason. Still, this is a prime example of how ordinary people changed the course of a state after losing a battle, but not the war.
