RYE BROOK -- Film crews were in full force Wednesday at 30 Brook Lane.

"Freeheld,'' a movie about a lesbian couple who fought for domestic partner benefits, rolled some more footage a stone's throw from Blind Brook.

Tuesday, passersby caught glimpses of Julianne Moore and Ellen Page. Steve Carell also stars in the film.

Wednesday afternoon takes featured Michael Shannon, a regular on the HBO series "Boardwalk Empire,'' who was nominated for an Oscar as best supporting actor in "Revolutionary Road."

Shannon, 40, was filmed picking up a newspaper and entering the home on Brook Lane.

The sets typically are not difficult to find: Sunset Road and Phyllis Place were lined by huge trailers Wednesday. Large yellow signs marked "F/H" along Westchester Avenue guided hundreds of people to that day's work.
