There’s going to be a bit of a battle of high profile gay-themed films in the next few months, and one of the most interesing-looking of those is Freeheld. We got a trailer for the movie a couple of weeks ago and now that’s been followed by a couple of posters, which you can see above and below.
In the true life tale, Page plays mechanic Stacie Andree, who was denied the pension benefits of her longtime partner and New Jersey police detective Laurel Hester (Julianne Moore), when the latter became terminally ill. While Hester’s detective partner, Dane Wells (Michael Shannon), was conservative and initially surprised to learn of Hester’s sexual orientation, he stepped up to become the leader in the fight for Laurel’s rights to assign her benefits to Stacie. Steve Carell meanwhile plays the lawyer who helped take the case to court.
The movie arrives in US cinemas in October, and it looks like it may also be trying an awards run.
