Ellen Page & Julianne Moore Star in Peter Sollett's 'Freeheld' Trailer
"If you could have anything, what would it be? What's your dream?" Lionsgate has debuted the official trailer for Peter Sollett's new film Freeheld, a moving drama starring Ellen Page and Julianne Moore as domestic partners. The story focuses on their struggle to keep a pension intact when Laurel Hester, played by Julianne Moore, is diagnosed with cancer. The supporting cast includes Steve Carell, Michael Shannon, Josh Charles and Luke Grimes. This has one of those very inspirational, hopeful, powerful messages of "change the world" at the end, complete with pop song. But it also looks really good, especially the two lead performances. Ellen Page looks to be at her best, and Moore is always at her best. #loveislove
