More Information

Description:

An unconstitutional proposition. An unprecedented decision. An all-star cast. Starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Martin Sheen, "8" is written by Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk, J. Edgar) and directed by acclaimed actor and director Rob Reiner. The play 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. Exclusive interviews included: - Dustin Lance Black and Rob Reiner, playwright and director of "8" - David Boies and Ted Olson, lawyers for Prop 8 plaintiffs in California - Backstage interview montage with actors George Clooney, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, John C. Reilly, Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and James Pickens Jr. A full-cast performance featuring: George Clooney as David Boies Brad Pitt as Chief Judge Vaughn Walker Martin Sheen as Theodore B.
