#Slgff20 Opening Night Gala Freeheld says
Based on the OscarĀ®-winning short documentary, FREEHELD is the true love story of Laurel Hester [Julianne Moore] and Stacie Andree [Ellen Page] and their fight for justice.

A decorated New Jersey police detective, Laurel is diagnosed with cancer and wants to leave her hard earned pension to her domestic partner, Stacie. However the county officials, known as "Freeholders," conspire to prevent Laurel from doing this.

Hard-nosed detective Dane Wells [Michael Shannon], and activist Steven Goldstein [Steve Carell], unite in Laurel and Stacie's defense, rallying police officers and ordinary citizens to support their struggle for equality.
