Love is Strange

Thursday 26 March – 7.30pm

Love is Strange 2014Dir. Ira Sachs USA/Fra/Braz/Gre 2014 94 mins (15)
John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei

Together for years and recently married, Ben and George find their lives upended when they are forced out of their home. Living a rootless existence with friends and relatives they find themselves outsiders, testing family loyalties and dynamics by being unwanted (and reluctant) houseguests. A fascinating study of how our lives are forcibly reevaluated, this is also a gentle and subtle study of commitment and mutual devotion. Lithgow and Molina are perfectly balanced and there is tremendous underplayed support from Marisa Tomei.

 

“Never feels less than authentic, like a true story shared by close friends.” – Peter Debruge, Variety
