Alfred Molina and John Lithgow Play a Married Gay Couple in 'Love is Strange': TRAILER


Back in January, after seeing a Sundance screening of Ira Sachs new film Love is Strange starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as a just-married gay couple whose honeymoon is complicated when circumstances force them to temporarily separate, our film critic Nathaniel Rogers wrote:

Lithgow and Molina have great chemistry, never once feeling less than authentic or desexualized as elderly gay men with a forty-year history. Their lived in duet helps the film transcends the labels I've already placed on it here; it's a gay film, sure, but better than that it's a fully human one. Love is Strange has a lot more than just gay marriage with expansive ideas about aging, support networks and, brilliantly as it winds down, what the young gain from the old -- concerns that can't be reduced by sexual labels. It fully earned the copious tears and standing ovation that greeted its premiere here in Utah.

Now the film has a full trailer. Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

And if you missed the behind-the-scenes set shot of Cheyenne Jackson and Manny Perez in their cop uniforms that we posted last September, check it out HERE.

  3. Love is Strange and Lilting are the two gay films I'm most excited about this year. This trailer looks very promising.

  5. Not Pick Up Your Ears, PRICK Up Your Ears. That's the one error I would never have expected on this site.

  6. Looks like a winner if the film doesn't lapse into social situations that could be easily handled by the right language and simple alternatives. This is the problem with most narrative set ups - the right action or words could either defuse or eliminate tense or dangerous situations.

  7. I'm not sure what you're thinking about UFFA. The film centers on a late middle-aged gay couple who have been together o over 30 years, but it also contains many other characters gay and straight. None of the interactions o any of these characters rings false.

  8. I really was looking forward to this film until I saw the trailer. It looks a little precious. Hope not.
