FREEDOM TO MARRY-wp

"In a political climate in which all things progressive are at risk, this 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." -- Kenneth Turan, LA Times

"Director Eddie Rosenstein makes this a suspenseful legal yarn and an essential history lesson." - Village Voice
