'Hannah Free' to be Released on DVD June 1
HANNAH FREE, the lesbian drama starring multi-award winning actress Sharon Gless, will be sold in stores beginning June 1st, 2010.
Starring Sharon Gless (Burn Notice, Queer as Folk, Cagney & Lacey) in a tremendous performance, Hannah Free tells the moving story of 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, HANNAH FREE reveals how these two passionate women maintain their love affair despite a marriage, a world war, infidelity, and family denial.
HANNAH FREE has played at 60+ film festivals in North America, including San Francisco's Frameline Fest and Los Angeles's OUTFEST, and has won multiple prestigious awards, including Best Feature Film at Philadelphia's Q-Fest, Austin's Gay & Lesbian Film Fest and Montreal's International LGBT Film Festival. The San Francisco Chronicle said of Sharon Gless's performance "She commands the screen," and Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times calls this "A terrific role for Sharon Gless, who runs with it gloriously."
The DVD will come loaded with features including interviews with Sharon Gless, writer Claudia Allen, director Wendy Jo Carlton and the cast and crew; bloopers; Behind the Scenes featurette, WTTW-Television Chicago Tonight segment, and more.
Hannah Free was produced by Ripe Fruit Films and also stars Taylor Miller (All My Children), Maureen Gallagher, Ann Hagemann, Kelli Strickland and Jacqui Jackson.
