Hey guys! Horrorella here...
LOVE IS STRANGE promises a new romance for the modern era – and all of the strings that come with it. Alfred Molina and John Lithgow play a gay couple that take the plunge when same-sex marriage is finally legalized, after spending 39 years together. Though they may be able to legally wed, their union is, of course, not free of complications.
After 39 years together, Ben and George finally tie the knot in an idyllic wedding ceremony in lower Manhattan. But when news of their marriage reaches the Catholic school where George works, he is fired from his longtime job, and the couple can no longer afford their New York City apartment. As a temporary solution, George moves in with the two gay cops next door, while Ben moves to Brooklyn to live with his nephew, Eliot; Eliot’s wife, Kate; and their teenage son. As Ben and George struggle to secure a new apartment, the pain of living apart and their presence in two foreign households test the resilience and relationships of all involved.
I'm excited for this one. Molina and Lithgow are two reliably solid leads, and this looks like a really interesting story. One that examines how, with the celebration of progress and momentum, the rest of the world is often running to catch up.
What do you guys think?
