Hannah Free

Lesbian icon Sharon Gless (Cagney & Lacey) stars as the title character, a tart-tongued, bedridden old woman who seethes at the indignities of old age in the seniors ward of a hospital as her long-time lover (Maureen Gallagher) languishes in a coma down the hall. Their turbulent, pre-Stonewall affair unfolds in flashbacks, their younger selves respectively played by Kelli Strickland and Ann Hagemann; in the present-tense frame, Hannah grudgingly accepts the friendship of a liberated lesbian college student (Jacqui Jackson). Shot in HD video, this talky, gynocentric drama could easily be a play, but the acting is decent and director Wendy Jo Carlton manages well on a shoestring budget. 86 min.
