The applause at the end of the screening of Freeheld was deserving. This is a true story about New Jersey Police Officer Laurel Hester's battle to secure pension benefits for her registered domestic partner, Stacie Andree, when Hester dies from cancer.

Peter Sollett's Freeheld was, for me, the find of the day -- an intensely emotional film based on a true story that could easily win Julianne Moore her second Oscar in a row (and, perhaps, earn a nomination for the terrific Michael Shannon).
