Watch Trailer

"The Fight is a fantastic documentary highlighting the real heroes out there: the overworked attornies of the ACLU."

— Lorry Kikta, Film Threat

"Snappily edited, with a visual style reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh's modular design, The Fight tells viewers of a certain political perspective what they want to hear."

— Roxana Hadadi, AV Club

"Wisely focusing on four key cases, The Fight is a worthy attempt to document the ACLU’s seemingly endless struggle to challenge the many constitutional violations of the Trump administration."

— David Hughes, Empire

"[The filmmakers] have made a worthwhile record of the civil rights advocates combating the country’s backslide into stripping away rights for voters, immigrants, pregnant women and the LGBTQ community."

— Amy Nicholson, Variety

"In this engrossing and ultimately inspiring examination of ideals in action, the team behind The Fight wind up illustrating a cardinal rule of nonfiction filmmaking: When it comes to humanizing even the loftiest principles, a documentary lives or dies by its principals."

— Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
