CGiii Comment

Utterly heartbreaking.

These men, these Freeholders...unfeeling, evil to the core.

Discrimination is kept alive and well by men such as these...democratically voted.

It's a sad, sad world.

A profoundly moving film.

The(ir) Blurb...

Lieutenant Laurel Hester is dying. All she wants to do is leave her pension benefits to her life partner - Stacie, so Stacie can afford to keep their house. Laurel is told no; they are not husband and wife. After spending a lifetime fighting for justice for other people, Laurel - a veteran New Jersey detective - launches a final battle for justice. Knuckle-biting, dramatic Freeheld chronicles a dying policewoman's bitter fight to provide for the love of her life.
