Morning Brew – Wednesday, March 30: Ellen Page wants to do “Freeheld” like, now, and Emma and Jenny kiss on “Hand aufs Herz”


Good morning!

This is my last Brew for the week, as I will be at The Dinah doing some interviews/partying. (It’s my job.) But I will try to rope Heather Hogan into finishing it out for you all.

Now I may be biased, but I think you should definitely head on over to and subscribe to watch McManusland, which premieres today. I’m not joking when I tell you it is hilarious. (My boss is not paying me to say this.)

In August I told you about Swedish film Kiss Me that sounded pretty awesome. Now there’s a trailer!


Thanks for sending our way, Matilda.

Have you been wondering when you can see My Idiot Brother? Wonder no more — it’ll hit theaters August 26.

While doing an interview about her new movie Super, Ellen Page spoke briefly about upcoming projects including Freeheld. (She begins talking about it at about 3:22.) For the record, we hope it goes into production very very soon, too, Ellen.

Remember when we told you about the burgeoning lesbian relationship on German show Hand aufs Herz? It seems to be coming along swimmingly. AE reader amidola gave us the update on the couple, who finally kissed! If you want to watch their storyline progress with some English subtitles, someone was nice enough to provide it for you.

My pal Zack over at The New Gay shared this interview he did with Jill Sobule, and there is some kissing happening.
