I'm sure the story about Laurel Hester and her same-sex partner Stacie Andree is an inspiring one. But the movie 'Freeheld' plays it so safe and predictable that it's got no surprises and it's boring. Steve Carell and Michael Shannon work well together as this oddball friendship between a flamboyant gay activist and a straight no-nonsense cop.

Freeheld started off promising, with two solid performances from Moore and Page (Even when I didn't care for the chemistry between the two until the very end of film). But then the movie quickly dissolves away and turns into this flat, mediocre movie. I wish the movie had more of a focus with the relationship and let things between them grow so we can relate to them more, but sadly the movie never dose that. What could have been a good movie, took a lot of things too safe. I highly recommend seeing the 2007 Documentary short "Freeheld", which is far better than this.

Klischees

Hier kommt die Verfilmung des gleichnamigen Kurzfilms, der 2008 den Oscar gewann - auf die Initiative der Schauspielerin Ellen Page hin.

Es macht bestimmt keinen Spass, einen gutgemeinten Film zu kritisieren, aber Freeheld stolpert über zuviele Klischees. Das Herz von Freeheld mag am rechten Fleck sein, der Fokus aber nicht. Regisseur Peter Sollett macht aus dem Kurzfilm einfach eine kinotaugliche Version und bietet zwei Trümpfe: Julianne Moore und Ellen Page! Moore spielt die Polizeikommissarin Laurel, die ganz tough in ihrem Job aufgeht. Page ist Stacie, eine hemdsärmliche Mechanikerin, die sich in Laurel...
