The fight for Marriage Equality seems to be nearing a triumphant end. We forget this battle has been raging for decades and has fallen heroes. So that we always remember, the director of the Roxanne T. Mueller Award-winning “One Bad Cat: The Reverend Albert Wagner Story” (32nd CIFF) has crafted a powerful history of this struggle and its pioneers. It began when American Richard Adams met visiting Australian Tony Sullivan and fell in love. In 1975 they became one of the first same-sex couples in the world to be legally married in Colorado, so Tony could immigrate as a spouse. The INS denied them, sending a shockingly-worded homophobic letter. Horrified and outraged, they sued the United States and the battle for Marriage Equality officially began. Told with warmth, humor, and fearlessness, LIMITED PARTNERSHIP is not just the history of a struggle. It also tells of a heroic and devoted couple, fighting a deeply prejudiced government and an exploitative media. Richard and Tony prove that grace, courage, and love always overcome. – C.R.
