Our Rating

MPAA Rating: G

On the evening of March 3rd, the American Foundation for Equal Rights (www.afer.org), with the help of a bunch of celebrity friends, debuted “8”, new play about marriage equality, streaming for all the world on YouTube. The full play is now available to watch on YouTube.

THE SCOOP: Featuring an all-star cast including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jane Lynch, Kevin Bacon and others, “8” is a play written by Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and directed by acclaimed actor and director Rob Reiner. It is a powerful account of the case filed by the American Federation for Equal Rights (AFER) in the U.S. District Court in 2010 to overturn Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry in the state of California. Framed around the trial’s historic closing arguments in June 2010, 8 provides an intimate look what unfolded when the issue of same-sex marriage was on trial.
