TV Times - - Film Guide -

This bit­ter­sweet fact-based drama star­ring Ju­lianne Moore and Ellen Page chron­i­cles a land­mark equal rights bat­tle in re­cent US his­tory – the strug­gle of a ter­mi­nally ill New Jer­sey cop (Moore) against a big­oted es­tab­lish­ment to have her pen­sion paid to her fe­male part­ner (Page). The sto­ry­telling is a tad con­ven­tional but the per­for­mances are fine, with Michael Shan­non (as Moore’s po­lice part­ner) vy­ing with the stars for top act­ing hon­our. Dir: Peter Sol­lett 2015, 12, 120min
