While New York continues to bumble around when it comes to equal marriage rights, Massachusetts has been legally wedding same-sex couples since 2004. Still, where there’s gay justice, there’s big-time bigotry. This documentary follows the nerve-racking grassroots fight to preserve gay marriage by ensuring that a proposed “one man, one woman” amendment to the state constitution doesn’t unravel the law. 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.
