Hannah Free

Feature Film USA 2009

Admitted to a nursing home, Hannah remembers her long-term relationship with Rachel, now in a coma in another room in the same home. Hannah and Rachel grew up as little girls in the same small Midwestern town, where their love affair, which has continued on and off throughout their lives, has always come under fire from the respectable, homophobic community. Now Rachel's family, especially her daughter, forbid Hannah  to see her lover again for the last time. Hannah has lived a full life, becoming an open, adventurous lesbian, while Rachel has been a strong but quiet homemaker  family woman, married to a religion teacher. Weaving back and forth between past and present, the film reveals the moving and devastating passion that is coming to a conclusion as their lives end. Almost a female Brokeback Mountain, the film is a kind of Kammerspiel starring Sharon Gless who also appeared in the American version of "Queer as Folk" in the starring role of Hannah. Gless, a very intense performer, has always had a strong following within the lesbian community in America, even though she has never officially come out as a lesbian.
