Trivia Freeheld

'Freeheld' reunites Julianne Moore and Steve Carell after their appearance in 'Crazy, Stupid, Love'. Salesian High School in New Rochelle, NY, denied a scene to be filmed there due to the dialogue and their religious views on homosexuality. Although the film is set in New Jersey, it was filmed in New York due to its more generous tax incentives for filmmakers.
