Love Is Strange
Love Is Strange - Trailer
Director Ira SachsYear 2014
Ben and George have been together for four years and finally decide to get married. While their matrimony may have touched the hearts of their friends and family, the archdiocese soon hears about it and George is subsequently fired from his job as a teacher at the local catholic school. The pair can't afford to live in the area any longer with only Ben's pensions and George's profits from private piano lessons as income, and so they must sell their apartment and set out on a search for cheaper housing. However, the tough New York housing market means they are forced to stay with their separate families and friends. It's not the most ideal of situations for anyone; George and Ben are struggling to cope with their separation and neither are dealing with their strange new home environments.
This touching, and often frustrating, drama deals with a variety of emotional issues from family relationships to prejudice. It has been directed by Ira Sachs ('Keep the Lights On', 'Married Life', 'Forty Shades of Blue') who co-wrote the screenplay alongside Mauricio Zacharias ('Love for Sale', 'Madame Sata'), and it is set to hit movie theaters in the US on August 22nd 2014.
