The result is surprisingly suspenseful and thoroughly moving and inspiring.

[Director] Rosenstein's greatest achievement is his recognition of the massive efforts put forth by Wolfson, lawyer and civil rights advocate Mary Bonauto, and many others.

A straightforward encomium for a leading champion of gay rights.

Mar 11, 2017 | Full Review…

In a political climate in which all things progressive are at risk, the film is a reminder of the long and difficult work that victory took as well as a notification that no triumph can be taken for granted.

It does its job more or less efficiently (we could do without Wolfson's parents' friends talking about what a bright boy he was) in cookie-cutter documentary fashion.

Rosenstein's modest documentary may feel like a niche undertaking, but it still carves out its own worthy place in the struggle.
