Love Wins
Two 80-plus year old women fell in love and raised a family in suburban New Jersey during a time when doing so was strictly taboo. All this in spite of a husband, italian-catholic guilt and the law. Now, after being together, living in the closet for 45 years, they got married and are now proud, flag-waving members of a social movement that has changed the course of the history of marriage.

To a More Perfect Union: US v. Windsor

U.S. v Windsor is a feature-length documentary that tells a story of love, marriage, and a fight for equality. The film chronicles unlikely heroes -- octogenarian Edie Windsor and her attorney, Roberta Kaplan, on their quest for justice. Upon the death of her spouse, Edie was forced to pay a huge estate tax bill because the government denied federal benefits to same-sex couples– and Edie’s spouse, Thea Spyer, was a woman. Deeply offended by this lack of recognition of her more than forty-year relationship with the love of her life, Edie decided to sue the United States government – and won. Windsor and Kaplan’s legal and personal journeys are told in their own words as well as through interviews with members of their legal team, movement activists, legal analysts, well-known supporters, and their opponents. Beyond the story of this pivotal case in the marriage equality movement, the film also tells the story of our journey as a people, as a culture, and as citizens with the promise of equal rights.
