“Gripping. Audiences will cheer!” —The Huffington Post

Jeff Kaufman’s documentary The State of Marriage captures the untold story of how legal pioneer Mary Bonauto partnered with small town Vermont lawyers Beth Robinson and Susan Murray in a decade long struggle that built the foundation for the entire marriage equality movement. Despite fierce opposition, Vermont became the first state to grant same sex couples legal recognition through a 1999 State Supreme Court decision and groundbreaking legislation in 2000, and the first to legalize marriage equality by legislative vote in 2009.
