Freeheld's first act combines irrelevant police cases with an awkward early-stage romance that develops into a cheesy, sun-splashed love story.
February 14, 2019
The film inexplicably never develops into anything more than a based-on-a-true-story TV film of the week.

Maybe Just See the Documentary It's Based On?

Moore and Page don't have great chemistry, which means the heart of a movie about the power of love doesn't quite beat.
January 2, 2017
This is ultimately a by-the-numbers issue pic stubbornly televisual in style and scope.
December 18, 2016
A typically vanilla offering that only hints at deeper "issues".

This almost Caprian tale loses its strength when it trades form for an exalted sense of spectacle and celebration. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 6, 2016
Even films with the best of intentions can go horribly awry. ... [This is] a narrative that can't decide if it's a disease-of-the-week drama, a gay rights story or a courtroom battle.
March 16, 2016
Freeheld is ultimately a film without a soul, without character; full of clichs to a genre that simply does not need them. [Full review in Spanish]

In the quest to make An Important Film, director Peter Sollet (Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, Raising Victor Vargas) has produced Teachable Moments instead of complexity or authentic emotion.
March 10, 2016
Great themes and story and a spectacular cast, however, it's predictable and it takes the easy way out. [Full review in Spanish]

Thank God there are good performances that work (but don't save) in this movie. [Full review in Spanish]
March 10, 2016
A manipulative drama with good intentions that ends up being a cartoon of what it wants to say. [Full review in Spanish]
March 4, 2016
It falls in the same cliches about tolerance and doesn't really add anything new or original to the subject. [Full review in Spanish]
February 21, 2016
Perfunctory direction renders dull what could have been a compelling story about the need for equality in a job where decades' worth of gender discrimination has been compounded by systemic homophobia.
February 19, 2016
Why does Michael Shannon get the best written part in a lesbian drama?
February 18, 2016
Besides that, the film simplifies the disorder. Shots of bug-eyed Carla and Marco running hand-in-hand through the streets while blue and yellow planets swirl around them just looks like an acid trip.
February 18, 2016
You've got to feel sorry for the makers of Freeheld. They must have thought they had it in the bag.
February 18, 2016
One to avoid.
February 18, 2016
