LOVE IS STRANGE – In Theaters August 22, 2014.

After nearly four decades together, Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) finally tie the knot in an idyllic wedding ceremony in lower Manhattan. But when George loses his job soon after, the couple must sell their apartment and – victims of the relentless New York City real estate market – temporarily live apart until they can find an affordable new home. While George moves in with two cops (Cheyenne Jackson and Manny Perez) who live down stairs, Ben lands in Brooklyn with his nephew (Darren Burrows), his wife (Marisa Tomei), and their temperamental teenage son (Charlie Tahan), with whom Ben shares a bedroom. While struggling with the pain of separation, Ben and George are further challenged by the intergenerational tensions and capricious family dynamics of their new living arrangements.

SIR MICHAEL GAMBON, ALFRED MOLINA TO STAR IN LOVE IS STRANGE; INDEPENDENT SPIRIT NOMINEE IRA SACHS’S NEWEST FEATURE

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

Parts & Labor announced today that Sir Michael Gambon and Alfred Molina will star in LOVE IS STRANGE, Independent Spirit Award Nominee Ira Sachs’s newest feature. Production is slated to begin in New York City this summer.

Gambon and Molina play Ben and George, a couple who after 28 years together, finally marry at a City Hall wedding in Manhattan. On return from their honeymoon, however, Ben gets fired from his job as a choir director for a Catholic high school. With not enough money to stay in their small apartment, the two are forced to move in, separately, with a nephew and his family in Brooklyn, and the two gay cops next door.

A multi-generational story of love and marriage, LOVE IS STRANGE depicts the delicate nature of any two people trying to build a long life together, and the possibility of love to grow deeper, and richer, with time.

Gambon can currently be seen theatrically in Quartet, directed by Dustin Hoffman and distributed by The Weinstein Company. His films include Peter Greenway’s The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover, Gosford Park, The Life Aquatic, and Professor Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and all subsequent installments of the Harry Potter series.
