Ellen Page, Julianne Moore to Star in Fact-Based Gay Rights Drama

Ellen Page and Julianne Moore are set to star in a drama about a gay couple battling for pension benefits denied based on their sexual preference.

The project is based on a 2007 documentary short directed by Cynthia Wade.

“Freeheld” tells the inspiring true story of Stacie Andree (Page) and New Jersey police detective Laurel Hester (Moore), a devoted couple whose world is shattered when Laurel becomes terminally ill and government officials prevent her from assigning her pension benefits to Stacie.

Laurel’s conservative partner, Detective Dane Wells, is shocked when he learns of Laurel’s orientation, but becomes the leader in the fight for gay rights
