'The Case Against 8' Proposition 8 Documentary Gets a Full Trailer: VIDEO

Caseagainst8

Journalist Lisa Keen called Jo Becker's book Forcing the Spring "hell-bent on making Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin and conservative icon attorney Ted Olson into the white horse heroes of an upcoming Hollywood docu-drama about How the Marriage Equality Movement was Won."

But in fact, there is such a Hollywood docu-drama, and it's called The Case Against 8, which might be seen by some as a companion, or perhaps an alternative, to Becker's controversial and highly-criticized retelling of the events in the Prop 8 case.

In any case, The Case Against 8 won the Documentary Directing Award at Sundance and took home an Audience Award at SXSW. It's opening in limited release in June and airing on HBO on June 23.

  1. The prop 8 case was showboating from start to finish. It wasn't effective but stalled marriage in CA longer than necessary while power egos strutted around rasing money for themselves. And now it's a movie.

  2. Jo Becker is a f**king hack.

  3. Haven't read the book, nor seen the documentary, but the first obvious difference between the two is clear from the title of the documentary: it's about Prop 8. It doesn't appear to claim to be about a languishing movement, peopled by timid, clueless "activists," in need of a savior. Seems like a fairly important distinction to me.

  4. Gay so-called activists and bloggers sometimes fail to realize the difference between complaining and taking action, and unfortunately history only remembers the latter.

    If they don't like Becker's recount of events...write your own book!
