Must Watch: Lithgow & Molina in Wonderful 'Love is Strange' Trailer
"When you live with people, you know them better than you care to." Sony Pictures Classics has finally debuted the trailer for Ira Sachs' Love is Strange, starring Alfred Molina & John Lithgow as a couple together for 39 years. It really is a beautiful, tender, moving film, which is exactly what I'm quoted saying in the trailer (from this review). While it's very timely in its presentation of an elderly gay couple struggling with society, it's very timeless in the way it talks about love, and how much love always shines through and can teach great lessons. The supporting cast includes Marisa Tomei, Cheyenne Jackson, Charlie Tahan and Christian Coulson. I really love the film and want to support it as much as I can, happy to share this trailer.
Here's the full theatrical trailer for Ira Sachs' Love is Strange, originally from Yahoo:
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. Love is Strange is written & directed by American filmmaker Ira Sachs (of The Delta, Forty Shades of Blue, Married Life, Keep the Lights On). This premiered at Sundance 2014. Sony Classics will release the film on August 22nd.
