This multilayered drama portrays the lifelong romance of Hannah and Rachel — impassioned lovers since youth, their mutual love and desire never waver despite a marriage, a world war, infidelity and family denial. Starring Sharon Gless and Maureen Gallagher; plus Kelli Strickland and Ann Hagemann (as the younger Hannah and Rachel — pictured on the exciting new DVD re-release box cover).
Starring multi-award winning actress Sharon Gless (Burn Notice, Queer as Folk, Cagney & Lacey) in a tremendous performance, Hannah Free is a feature film about the lifelong love affair between an independent spirit and the woman she calls home.Hannah and Rachel grow up in the same Midwest town, where traditional gender expectations eventually challenge their deep love for one another. Hannah becomes an adventurous, unapologetic lesbian and Rachel a strong but reserved homemaker. Weaving between past and present, the story reveals how the women maintain their lifelong love affair against all odds. Directed by Wendy Jo Carlton (Jamie and Jessie Are Not Together) and written by Claudia Allen.
A Special Note!
We have gotten such passionate feedback from viewers about this wonderful film that we just have to share a few testimonials:
“Just got through watching and all I can say is OMG, that was AMAZING!!!
What a performance by Sharon!! I’m glad I bought it instead of renting. I’ll
probably be watching it again tomorrow. Highly recommend it to anyone.”
“I rented the movie through iTunes as I haven’t been able to find it available locally to rent. By the end of the film I had tears in my eyes, which doesn’t happen a lot with movies or television. I enjoyed it so much I’ve purchased it online through Wolfe Video. The performances were brilliant and I loved it very much. Thank you! I’m a lesbian and I’m a Licensed Practical Nurse in a nursing home, and I would love to think that I would be more sympathetic to the needs of lesbian residents if we ever get one; in the nine years I’ve worked there, I’ve yet to encounter a senior lesbian resident.”
“I don’t post here often, but just had to say that I rented Hannah Free from Netflix and gotta say “WOW”. I was so touched by the movie-finally a movie that portrays older lesbians in a real way. Thanks Sharon for a great portrayal of Hannah. Great flick folks if you have not rented it, you should.”
