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 Foundation 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.
