Overview

A committed gay couple finds their fledgling marriage challenged by a series of unexpected developments in this compassionate drama from writer/director Ira Sachs (MARRIED LIFE, KEEP THE LIGHTS ON). Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) have been together for nearly 40 years. When gay marriage becomes legal in New York, the happy couple decides that it's finally time to tie the knot, and declare their love for one another in front of family and friends. Though the ceremony is everything Ben and George ever could have hoped for, the happy couple's newlywed bliss is sadly short-lived when the diocese receives word of the wedding, and George is fired from his job as a music teacher at a local Catholic school. As a result, the pair is no longer able to afford the rent on the New York City apartment they've shared for two decades. In order at remain in the city while searching for a job, George moves in with his sympathetic neighbors, a pair of gay policemen (Manny Perez and Cheyenne Jackson). Meanwhile Ben attempts to make the best of the situation by moving in with his nephew's family in Brooklyn. Now, as the big event that should have brought Ben and George closer together leads only to loneliness and frustration, everyone involved find their once-comfortable lives in a hopeless state of flux. Marisa Tomei, Darren E. Burrows, and Charlie Tahan co-star.

Editorial Reviews

  1 2 3 4  NextNext
New York Times 08-21-2014 "Mr. Lithgow and Mr. Molina, seasoned and subtle actors, beautifully capture the small pleasures and petty irritations Ben and George live through, and also their pride at having survived, together, for so long."
Total Film 02-02-2015 4 stars out of 5 -- "Molina’s minimalist performance is fine stuff, but Lithgow’s fate-battered compassionate lover is exceptional."
USA Today 08-21-2014 3 stars out of 4 -- "Love may be weird, complicated and uncertain, but it is also wondrous. LOVE IS STRANGE makes that case with a remarkable blend of tenderness, wit and intelligence."
