Christine Vachon’s Killer Films, which produced Carol, presents the third feature from Israeli filmmaker Tali Shalom-Ezer.
Ellen Page plays an activist demonstrating against the death penalty, who becomes embroiled in a passionate and charged affair with Kate Mara, who is seeking justice for her father’s murder.
The two women must surmount their deeply rooted differences or risk losing their connection.
Amy Seimetz, co-creator and director of The Girlfriend Experience, also stars alongside Elias Koteas (The Killing).
Recently, Page said she is committed right now to taking roles that support women and gay characters.
Last year during a news conference at the Zurich Film Festival, where Freeheld was screening, she told the press…
I’m focusing mostly on stories that are meaningful to me and stories for women and supporting more gay characters.”
Let’s hope, at some point, one of those gay characters can have a happy ending. Or at least be in a romantic comedy.
