Freeheld

Critics Consensus

Freeheld certainly means well, but its cardboard characters and by-the-numbers drama undermine its noble intentions.

    An emotional tribute-film to Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree. They were a gay couple, who reluctantly turn activists, when Hester was denied the ability to assign her death benefits to her partner, Andree. The acting is stellar if the direction is not. The storyline takes a predictable note, but none of that matters. By the time you see photographs of the real Hester and Andree at the end of the movie, you'll be wiping away tears.

    Heartfelt and heartrending, "Freeheld" is a real tearjerker of injustice, loss and hope. The dialogue lacks inspiration, but the intimate acting of Moore and Page make up for it.
