George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Martin Sheen lead an all-star cast in this powerful portrait of an American civil rights struggle. In 2008, California's Proposition 8 stripped the freedom to marry away from gay and lesbian couples. Now, two of the nation's most renowned attorneys have joined forces to challenge Proposition 8 under the United States Constitution. "8" faithfully recreates the progression of the historic trial through court transcripts and interviews with the plaintiffs, as their stories are brought to life before a live audience.
Includes exclusive interviews with playwright Dustin Lance Black, director Rob Reiner and lead attorneys for the plaintiffs—David Boies and Theodore B. Olson. Also includes a backstage cast interview montage.
Recorded before a live audience at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre, Los Angeles in March of 2012.
