Freeheld :- Watch Freeheld on GoMoviesTube,New Jersey police lieutenant, Laurel Hester, and her registered domestic partner, Stacie Andree, both battle to secure Hester’s pension benefits when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer.The real Stacie Andree, Dane Wells and Steven Goldstein can be seen as extras in the film. Stacie can be seen wearing a black cardigan behind Ellen Page (who portrays her) in the third Freeholder meeting, sitting in the right aisle seat of the second row. Dane portrays the police officer, between two taller officers, who is handed a box of ashes. Steven can be seen in the second Freeholder meeting, seated behind Steve Carell (who portrays him), holding a red sign and seated in the aisle seat of the right side second row (the same seat that the real Stacie Andree can be seen in, later in the film). In a time when our nation is going through some the most progressive and long overdue changes in history, a film as timely as “Freeheld” would be welcomed with open arms and minds from critics and audiences. Unfortunately, what director Peter Sollett creates, in partnership with Academy Award nominated screenwriter Ron Nyswaner, is an uninspired, insipid, and downright cheap take on a same-sex couple fighting for death benefits.Starring recently Oscar-crowned Julianne Moore and Ellen Page, the two manage decent chemistry and maneuver through generic and Lifetime movie-like lines. The impressive Michael Shannon does his very best to elevate all the material, showing the if you’re talented enough, no script can hold you back. On the hand, the rest of the cast, particularly Steve Carell, is so over-the-top, and poorly guided, that everything that could have made “Freeheld” a spectacular and moving drama, is quickly transformed into a distorted and tragic version of the Oscar-winning short that the film is based on. The most novice filmmakers could have created something more gratifying.
