In 2008, California passed Proposition 8, banning gay marriage just six months after it was legalized. In response, gay-marriage supporters from across the political spectrum filed suit to overturn the law. Directors Ben Cotner and Ryan White followed this landmark case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. With the country still staunchly divided on this issue, The Case Against 8 not only recounts recent history in great detail but may very well be a starting point for much more to come.
