“Freeheld” Nominated for Oscar

Freeheld There are few things as satisfying in life as seeing the people you love do well. I’m so delighted to pass on the news that one of my best friends from the States, Cynthia Wade, has scooped an Oscar nomination for her documentary film, Freeheld. Based upon Laurel Hester, a dying police lieutenant who wants to leave her pension benefit to her same-sex partner, the film is about love and battling injustice. The film has already won a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

I am so proud of you, Cynthia. Well done, and best of luck!

Best of luck to the Irish nominees as well!
