Wow, I for one can’t wait to see this one!!!
I adore Julianne Moore and I think Ellen Page is a really good actress!!
This whole movie really is about: ALL LOVE IS EQUAL!!
Based on the true love story of Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree. Starring Julianne Moore, Ellen Page, Michael Shannon and Steve Carell .
Story line: New Jersey police lieutenant, Laurel Hester (Julianne Moore), and her registered domestic partner, Stacie Andree (Ellen Page), both battle to secure Hester’s pension benefits when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. They get help from detective Dane Wells (Michael Shannon) and activist Steven Goldstein (Steve Carell).
This is what Moore said in an interview:
‘Ellen Page helped me understand lesbian role’
She tells Out magazine, “Ellen had so recently come out, and this is going to sound silly, and hopefully not hurtful, but I don’t think I was aware of how painful it is to be closeted. I have the advantage of being a person who’s never had to hide my sexuality, so I asked her a lot of questions – frank questions – about what that feels like.
Actress Julianne Moore has credited Ellen Page for helping her perfect her latest lesbian character in the gay rights drama “Freeheld,” revealing Page made her realize how difficult it was for her to hide her sexuality.
Moore and Page play lovers in the film, and the 54 year old, who also portrayed a gay woman in “The Kids Are Alright,” explains Page spoke with her about all the difficulties she experienced before coming out publicly in 2014.
The Oscar winner admits their talks helped open her eyes to the real problems lesbians have when they open up about their sexual preferences.
