21:00 The Case Against 8 at Friday, July 25, 2014 at 9:00 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 4 days left to see this film.

Rated: Parental Guidance (Mature Theme)

Director: Ben Cotner/Ryan White
Country: US

“The stirring new documentary showcasing the lawyers and plaintiffs who challenged California's 2008 gay marriage ban is the best kind of popular history, a film that trembles with tears and hope, and I dare you to get through it without bawling some yourself. The filmmakers target the heart rather than the complex legal maneuverings... That's no betrayal of the wrangling of the plaintiffs' ace legal team, headed up by the strangest of bedfellows, David Boies and Ted Olson... who squared off before the Supreme Court on no less a case than Bush v. Gore... In most of the proceedings cameras were banned from the courtroom, so the directors use footage of the plaintiffs reading from their own testimony... That move turns out to be revelatory. As they declaim their own words, often professions of the deep and abiding love each shares for their partner, we can imagine the drama of the trial... We're also treated to something even grander: regular folks revisiting the plain language with which they changed the world, each clearly moved and humbled, each understanding that, in some real sense, a historic wrong was righted by nothing less than their own love.” - Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice
