Love Is Strange

Buy Tickets

(2014) dir Ira Sachs w/John Lithgow, Alfred Molina [94 min; DCP]
John Lithgow and Alfred Molina shine in this emotional film about a New York couple that ties the knot after 39 years together only to face unexpected challenges when one of them is fired for this now-seemingly-innocuous event. A poignant, beautiful and funny film from the great Ira Sachs.

“I can’t say enough about how smart and clear-eyed it is. And moving: I’m wiping tears off my keyboard as I type this.” – Wesley Morris, Grantland

“An unforgettable portrait, set to a dazzling soundtrack of Chopin piano pieces, of the sense of loss we all feel when we are obliged to move into unfamiliar and uncomfortable surroundings.” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star

★★★½ “Sachs tells the story with artful economy – one late, crucial plot point happens without our seeing it – and ends it with an achingly lovely image, caught in golden sunlight.” – Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times

★★★½ “‘Love Is Strange’ is one of those lovely little movies that starts out being about a handful of people and ends up being about all of us.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe
