Love Is Strange

  • Starring: Alfred Molina, Charlie Tahan, Darren E. Burrows, John Lithgow, Marisa Tomei
  • Director: Ira Sachs
  • Genre(s): Drama
  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 94 mins.

Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) take advantage of New York’s new marriage laws and tie the knot after being together for 39 years. Unfortunately, the Catholic school where George teaches does not approve, and they reluctantly fire him, forcing the couple to split up and stay with friends while they sell their apartment and look for cheaper housing. George crashes with two gay police officers, while Ben, who’s a painter, bunks with his nephew’s family in Brooklyn—a temporary situation that weighs heavily on all involved. [Sony Pictures Classics]

"Love Is Strange is, above all, a triumph for Lithgow and Molina, two consummate actors who bring decades of experience to artful performances that are as emotionally expressive in silence as they are in words. Acting doesn’t get better than this. Want to know what love is? Watch Lithgow and Molina and learn."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Love Is Strange never feels anything less than authentic, like a true story shared by close friends."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"You need to give Love Is Strange your eyes and ears and attention, let it work its effects on you gradually, like the lovely Chopin piano music that forms the spine of its soundtrack."
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"In the hands of two of the craft's best, the most ordinary of moments become illuminating, penetrating."
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
"Calling Love Is Strange a great gay love story is both precise and inaccurate; I doubt I’ll see a more finely performed and beautifully crafted love story, with or without any mere modifiers, up on the big screen this year."
- James Rocchi, The Playlist
"Love Is Strange emerges as a total triumph for Sachs and his co-leads, John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, who, despite lengthy filmographies, turn in career-topping work. a sensitive domestic tragedy about the finite nature of any union."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
