"There’s an undeniable pleasure to be had from watching Gless … Cagney lives, and she’s as cranky as ever." – Chuck Wilson, LA Weekly
The lifelong bond of love between feisty, adventurous Hannah (Gless) and placid home-body Rachel faces one last crisis as Rachel lies comatose in a nursing home, her straitlaced daughter standing guard to bar Hannah from her lover’s bedside. Frankly exploring one of the burning social issues of our time, HANNAH FREE, based on Claudia Allen’s acclaimed stage play and shot entirely in the Chicago area, is above all a free-spirited chronicle of the love of two women, with all its trials, joys, and history. Gless ("Cagney & Lacey, " "Queer as Folk") soars as Hannah, bringing rakish charm and steely determination to her portrayal of a woman whose life is defined by her refusal to be caged by convention.
