Warning: The clip you are about to watch will extract liquid from your tear ducts. Freeheld is the true story of Stacie Andree and Laurel Hester, a lesbian couple who fought for their rights after Hester was not allowed to transfer her pension to Andree after being diagnosed with lung cancer. On these merits alone, the movie feels like a must-watch. But add the fact that Andree is played by Ellen Page and Hester is played by Julianne Moore, plus the unprecedented momentum of gay rights, and suddenly Freeheld has the potential of being one of the most talked about films of the year. Seriously.
