Laurel and Stacie first encounter each other at a volleyball game with each playing on opposite teams. Stacie serves to Laurel, whereupon Laurel's team successfully returns the ball and the game is over. However, in volleyball, only the side that is serving can score a point and they must also win by two. For the game to be over, Laurel's side would need to get the ball back to serve the winning point. The director may have decided to skip that in order to keep the story moving. See more »

Great acting by Julianne Moore in a kinda averagely told story
Greetings from Lithuania.
"Freeheld" (2015) is a movie based on a very real story. I won't go into plot details, but this is kinda inspirational story. The lead performance by Julianne Moore is great - you won't expect anything less from this caliber Oscar winner, and she delivers it. Movie itself isn't bad by any means, at running time 1 h 40 min it wasn't boring and i watched it in one sit, and that is not a bad sign. But movie-making wasn't original or exciting and etc. This is a very averagely told story, with any emotional deep (script lacks of it) or anything else for what i could remember this movie for longer then one day after i finished it.
Overall, "Freeheld" is very watchable movie with no lasting impression. There are many well known faces in this movie, but they don't have much to do, script is very flat and predictable, directing is very simple. This is OK movie for one evening.
