    Portraying Laurel Hester, Julianne Moore once again demonstrates why she's among the best actors in the industry. She both becomes the character and enables you as a member of the audience to feel and participate in every moment, every experience. Ellen Page and Michael Shannon are equally fantastic as Laurel's partner Stacie Andree and fellow officer Dane Wells respectively. Highly recommend this film!

    Powerful--seeking justice in a country that guarantees (?) human rights! Julianne performs the role with passion, honesty, and believability. You will not be disappointed with the performance of Ellen Page, either--what a team! Steve Carell just proves his incredible versatility. I will watch this film again and again.

    I highly recommend this movie; it is a must see movie. It's a story about true love. It's a epic real life story about two women, who only wanted to be seen as equals in the eyes of the laws.

    Julianne Moore as usual gives a stellar performance in a story of the evolving rights of LGBT people. Great story and great cast, many of whom we know well.
