Laurel Hester is een zeer gewaardeerde rechercheur die al jaren met haar partner de straten van New Jersey drugsvrij probeert te houden. Haar privéleven komt tijdens werkuren nauwelijks ter sprake. Zo heeft ze zich nooit uitgesproken over haar seksuele voorkeur en weet niemand dat ze een serieuze relatie met de jongere Stacie heeft. Ze durft haar liefde voor Stacie pas openbaar te maken wanneer ze ontdekt dat ze terminaal ziek is. Ze heeft als laatste wens dat haar pensioenuitkering wordt uitbetaald aan de vrouw van haar leven, maar dat wordt door het politiekorps geweigerd. Met behulp van een homorechtenactivist gaan ze in een race tegen de klok, de strijd aan om gelijke rechten en een verandering in de wetgeving te bevechten.

It is a true story with little fictionalization and features a cast of powerful actresses, actors, and supporting film makers. While the subject matter involves two women who happen to be gay and are discriminated against because of it, it is not a film about gay rights activists or preaching. Rather it is a film about two ordinary people who only want to live a quiet life in a small community going to their jobs every day to serve that community. They do very ordinary things like buying a small fixer upper house that was all they could afford by combining their incomes and then repairing it with their sweat equity, buying a nice dog and trying to live their lives like everyone else. One of them, Laurel, is a decorated police detective who has literally put her life on the line every day for the past 24 years fighting organized crime groups in Ocean County, New Jersey (in real life she was the first female police lieutenant in that county police force, but it is only her rank and not her law enforcement work that was adjusted for the movie). During that time she had never asked for anything for herself - she only worked to serve the people in the County and uphold its laws for them. Her partner, Stacie, was a woman who was a skilled auto mechanic who worked long hours every day in a small local auto shop fixing cars for people in the community. The story begins as a simple love story where they meet and fall in love, then develops to portray how police detective Laurel developed terminal lung cancer. Her partner Stacie stayed by her side which does not always happen with other couples including straight couples. Then it moves into how Laurel made her only request ever to the County's five elected officials (called Freeholders) which was to use existing New Jersey State laws that allowed her pension benefits to go to her legally established partner, Stacie. While gay rights activists tried to use Laurel's case to advocate and march for marriage rights, Laurel refused and only asked the Freeholders for what was right and just under the law. The story goes into the Freeholders' refusal and the extended drama around what followed. During this time, Laurel wound up fighting for her last request while she was also fighting for her life as her terminal cancer progressed relentlessly. This true story was the basis for the eventual passage in New Jersey of the right to gay marriage, and was one of the cases that built towards the recent US Supreme Court ruling for gay marriage across the country.
Laurel is played by Julianne Moore who is scary talented and delivers a spellbinding performance in this film, especially since she is straight in her personal life with a beautiful children and husband. Julianne won the Academy Award the previous year and has four previous Academy Award nominations. Laurel's partner Stacie is portrayed by Ellen Page who is an exceptional actress as well with an Academy Award nomination for her starring role in the film Juno. The film also features Steve Carrel who has an Academy Award nomination for his earlier role in the film Foxcatcher, and Michael Shannon has an Academy Award nomination for his role in Revolutionary Road. The screenplay is by Ron Nyswaner who won an Academy Award nomination for the film Philadelphia, the musical score is by Hans Zimmer who won the Academy Award for the Lion King. There is a beautiful and haunting song at the end of the film that was composed by Linda Perry and performed by Miley Cyrus in which Miley surprised me with her quality of singing that goes far beyond her normal pop rock tunes - she is truly talented.
And on top of all of this this DVD includes as a special bonus a copy of the original documentary on this story that won the Academy Award in 2008 for short documentary. This exceptional documentary by itself would be worth the cost of the DVD.
This DVD is worth buying, watching and sharing with others.
of new jersey, she fought for the people and she did everything she could
and showed with her arrest and the details and one day, on her day off
she played volleyball for the police team against someone else
the player on the other side decided to hit the ball to the new girl on the police team,
it worked she missed and they got the point, so why not try again
she did and the sergeant hit it and they got the point this time
after the game was over, sergeant Hester got a cal to a police scene
and on her way out, the girl that hit the ball to her , went to meet
Sgt. Hester and eventually ask for her number, thats how they met
this is very important to the show, after all of this
a whole new story starts, they end up fighting for the equality
for gay people and how the fight started and how it all worked out,
this was back in 2007-8 and jersey did not believe in this
Anyway, the subject matter was presented fantastic. There was no need to go into details about the lady’s personal (sex) lives. That wasn’t what the story was about.
The movie was enjoyable from beginning to end. There were a couple times that a scene was acted out as if it was an audition rather than the real deal. Surprising given such veteran actors. Definitely worth watching for all audiences.

having to fight for what everybody else can get just because you are lgbt is an eye-opener! this is why we will never stop fighting for our
lgbt rights, this film shows the blueprint to gay marriage laws being passed further down the line well 10 years later.
