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.

So the premise of conflict relies on an idea that doesn't compute. A gay professor actively living with his partner teaches at a Catholic school. Firing from said Catholic school results in complex living situation that forces couple apart. Will we be asking the entire time why they didn't just move to smaller less expensive apartment and just live like the rest of us poor folk.

That "why they didn't just move to smaller less expensive apartment and just live like the rest of us poor folk" discussion is actually part of the plot! Don't worry, it's all there. That's what makes this such a unique film.

Plot? You expect us to sit through a movie for a plot? What's next, a story, too? We want our movies simple like, so we can understand them AND completely told to us by the trailer.

Looks even more affirming than I had imagined. Been looking forward to checking this one out for a while now.

It seems really strange to me that you would go on a rant about homophobia accusations when I don't see one negative comment posted about this film. If you want to judge a movie without seeing it, go ahead, but stop whining about not being able to say what you want. You sound a bit like a big baby when you do. Actually, you sound a LOT like a big baby.

Big baby.
