Love Is Strange

Exceptionally beautiful. One of the best films this year.
-Dennis Dermody, Paper Magazine
Superb. A total triumph for Ira Sachs. John Lithgow and Alfred Molina turn in career-topping work.
-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

Synopsis

Ben and George 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.
