Producers behind the upcoming gay drama Freeheld released a clip from the film as it prepares to make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday.

Freeheld is the Hollywood adaptation of the documentary short film of the same name based on the true story of a lesbian couple facing death while battling a discriminatory government.

Lieutenant Laurel Hester (played by Julianne Moore) fought for the right to leave her Ocean County, New Jersey police pension to her domestic partner, Stacie Andree (Ellen Page), as she faced a diagnosis of terminal lung cancer. Hester's conservative detective partner Dane Wells (Michael Shannon) stepped up to help her in her fight.

Steve Carell plays activist Steven Goldstein in the film.

The 45-second clip released this week shows how the women first met playing volleyball.

Laurel tells Stacie in the parking lot that she has a long ride home and starts toward her car.

“Can I have your number?” Stacie asks. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
