Hannah Free is a tear-jerker about longtime lesbian lovers languishing in the same Michigan nursing home.

It might be OK some early morning on an obscure cable network. But that's it.

Gray-haired Gless grouches with embarrassing abandon while chatting with the young ghost of her soulmate and befriending a mysterious girl (Jackson).

Hannah Free affords a terrific role for Sharon Gless.

Decent production values can't fend off the feeling that the pic should have been consigned, if not to the stage, then to the smallscreen.

Hannah Free is as predictable as a Hallmark Channel movie, although there's undeniable pleasure to be had from watching Gless mumble and grumble and generally chew the scenery. Cagney lives, and she's as cranky as ever.

A beautiful but stiltedly put-together tale of two women who love.

Good intentions don't matter when everything else is so incompetent.

Sharon Gless...gives a fine performance, but this is an otherwise schmaltzy movie that is hard to swallow.

Audience Reviews for Hannah Free

Quiet but never depressing movie about love, life, death and saying goodbye - with a marvelous cast, especially the amazing Sharon Gless. Great film.
