SHARON GLESS STARS IN ACCLAIMED ROMANTIC DRAMA

RIPE FRUIT NEWS RELEASE, Dec. 3, 2009

Sharon Gless, ( Burn Notice, Queer as Folk, Cagney & Lacey ) stars in the passionate lesbian drama Hannah Free, a new film about a lifelong love affair between an independent spirit and the woman she calls home. The film will screen two times only at the Little Art Theatre in Yellow Springs, Ohio, near Dayton.

The screenings will be Thursday, Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 24 at 4 p.m., 247 Xenia Avenue in Yellow Springs. Call 937-767-7671 for reservations ( no online sales ) and details will be posted soon at www.littleart.com .

Hannah ( Sharon Gless ) and Rachel ( Maureen Gallagher ) grew up as little girls in the same small Midwest town, where traditional gender expectations eventually challenge their deep love for one another. Hannah becomes an adventurous, unapologetic lesbian and Rachel a strong but quiet homemaker. Weaving back and forth between past and present, the film reveals how the women maintained their love affair despite a marriage, a world war, infidelities, and family denial.

The Chicago Tribune gave the film three stars, and the Huffington Post says Gless "delivers a stellar performance that is gritty, poignant and real." The San Francisco Chronicle said that Gless "commands the screen." The Web site Notes from Hollywood called the film "achingly beautiful."

Hannah Free is directed by Wendy Jo Carlton and written by Claudia Allen ( based on her acclaimed stage play ) . The independent film shot entirely in Chicago also stars Taylor Miller ( All My Children ) , Maureen Gallagher, Ann Hagemann, Kelli Strickland and Jacqui Jackson. The film is produced by Ripe Fruit Films. Executive Producers are Tracy Baim and Claudia Allen. The producers are Sharon Gless, Sharon Zurek ( also the films editor ) , Martie Marro ( also the films Music Composer ) and Wendy Jo Carlton. Director of Photography is Gretchen Warthen.
