Watch Julianne Moore and Ellen Page Meet In The First Clip From ‘Freeheld’

Watch Julianne Moore and Ellen Page Meet In The First Clip From 'Freeheld'

The first clip for Peter Sollett’s “Freeheld” has been released, showing how Julianne Moore and Ellen Page’s characters began their relationship. 

Based on the Oscar winning documentary short that details the domestic partnership battle fought by lesbian couple Laurel Hester (Moore) and Stacie Ardeen (Page) when Hester is diagnosed with cancer, it looks like it could be a mighty new addition to the LGBT rights film canon — and is coming at what seems like the perfect time for audiences to learn how horrifying legal battles were for gay couples just a decade ago.

The film premieres at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend, before opening in theaters October 2nd.
