Directed by Peter Sollett (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) and adapted from an Oscar-winning 2007 documentary short, the film follows Detective Lieutenant Laurel Hester's fight to legally transfer her earned pension over to her partner, Stacie Andree, following a terminal cancer diagnosis.

Ahead of the film's Toronto Film Festival premiere, we get to see Stacie (Ellen Page) approaching Laurel (Julianne Moore) following a volleyball practice.

The volleyball meeting has already been hinted at in set photos and the original trailer:

Look at my cutie @EllenPage on the set of #FREEHELD. She wants to play volleyball...aww

The short scene also reminds us all just how hard it is to gather up the courage to ask someone out.

The clip ends without revealing Laurel's response, but knowing the plot it's safe to say Stacie gets the digits. / Via Lionsgate

Freeheld will open in limited release on Oct. 2, and then wider on Oct. 9.
