It’s nice to see that Hollywood hasn’t forgotten “Freeheld,” the 2007 Academy Award-winning documentary short by Berkshires-based filmmaker Cynthia Wade. Julianne Moore, Ellen Page, and Zach Galifianakis have signed on to star in a feature film based on Wade’s movie about a terminally ill New Jersey police officer who is prevented by the government from assigning her pension benefits to her domestic partner. Peter Sollett, whose credits include “Raising Victor Vargas” and “Nick & Nora’s Infinite Playlist,” is set to direct. Wade, who attended Smith College, lives in South Egremont.
