Saving Marriage makes the deeply personal, powerfully political tussle a thriller with a number of intriguing characters and subplots.
Equally effective as a human interest story and political thriller.
Saving Marriage is an in-the-trenches, defiantly partisan and exuberantly big-hearted movie.
A solid, engrossing mix of reportage and human-interest stories.
We've all heard the story before, but moving discussions with folks like gay-rights lobbyist Arline Isaacson and lively footage of protests and Senate-floor testimonies make this film one wild personal-is-political ride.
Even for those who think they know the full story of Massachusetts' historic same-sex marriage law, this documentary will be a revelation.
High contrasts, as well as grays in between, structure John Henning and Mike Roth's moving 2006 documentary about the legal and political battles surrounding gay marriage in Massachusetts.
A portrait of democracy in action with high personal stakes and, as such, a moving emotional experience.
Leans on players in the policymaking game as talking heads on issues and tactics, people with a personal stake in the outcome to fully humanize the issue and a few who straddle both categories.
Enthusiastic to open minds and hearts with its multiple tales of injustice, painting a broader portrait of hope that one day all citizens of America will be lawfully regarded as equal no matter their sexual orientation.
Well-intentioned but amateurishly executed, overly sentimental and ultimately dull.
Seldom has a film been more aptly titled than Saving Marriage...people on both sides of this issue believe they are, in fact, saving marriage.
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.
