Freeheld

In a year when gay issues have been at the forefront, coincidentally there were at least four movies released in 2015 dealing with issues relating to gay rights. “Freeheld,” with Julianne Moore and Ellen Page playing a real life lesbian couple who fought for partner benefits, never achieved much buzz. “Stonewall,” the Roland Emmerich movie about the eponymous riot that sparked the gay rights movement, barely made it into theaters.

It’s been an interesting year in movies, often wildly uneven with some huge hits, lots of misses, and some yet to be seen. Those stingy movie studios are just now delivering some of the most anticipated movies into theaters, a frustrating marketing maneuver that saves money and builds interest — supposedly.

Chris Hemsworth

Little Opie has directed a whale of a tale in this new movie, but oddly it never gets its sea legs.
