Movieline Premieres the Poster for 8: The Mormon Proposition


One of the hot button documentaries this year at Sundance was 8: The Mormon Proposition, which examines the Mormon Church's role in passing the anti-gay Proposition 8 in California and happens to be narrated by the openly gay, prominently ex-Mormon writer/director Dustin Lance Black (Milk, the upcoming What's Wrong with Virginia). The film will be released in theaters, on demand and through digital download channels June 18th, but until then, Movieline has your first look at its poster.

Written and directed by journalist and former Mormon missionary Reed Cowan, and narrated by Academy Award© -winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk), "8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION" exposes the Mormon Church's historic involvement in the promotion and passage of California's Proposition 8 and the religion's ongoing campaign against gay rights. The film takes place in California and Utah as Mormons, following their prophet's call to action, wage spiritual warfare with money and misinformation against gay citizens, doing everything they can to deny them of marriage and the rights that come with it. "8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION" opens in theaters on June 18, 2010, two years after the first gay marriages took place in California (June 17, 2008).

    Go for it! I hope I will be able to see this movie. I live in Utah and I will promote any and all theaters who show this movie. I can't wait to PAY to see this movie.
    The Church and it's members have no idea all the people they hurt with the views

    I think they know all too well how many people they hurt. That was the point. That's what they do.

  • The film will hit Salt Lake City, the heart of Mormon Country on June 11, 2010 at the Tower Theater. It will return on June 18th along with 12 other major cities. I find that most of the general population of Mormons have NO idea how they hurt and divided families with their actions on Prop 8. This film does a fabulous job of exposing the truth.

  • This young girl has got plenty of very poor press. Seems like this girl is worthy of it should you ask me. She is too young when it comes to the stuff this girl does.
