First Run Features to Release Marriage Equality Documentary on May 28

On May 28, First Run Features will release To a More Perfect Union (DVD: $19.95), which tells a story of love, marriage, and a fight for equality. Directed by Donna Zaccaro, the film chronicles two unlikely heroes, octogenarian Edie Windsor and her attorney, Roberta Kaplan, who embark on a quest for justice. Windsor was forced to pay a huge estate tax bill upon the death of her spouse because the federal government denied federal benefits to same-sex couples. Deeply offended by this lack of recognition of her 40-plus-year relationship with the love of her life, Windsor sued–sparking a pivotal case in the marriage equality movement.
