Love is Strange

"Held aloft by remarkable performances from John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, Love Is Strange serves as a graceful tribute to the beauty of commitment in the face of adversity." Rotten Tomatoes

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. Although struggling with the pain of separation, the tenderness between Ben and George shines their challenging new living circumstances to show that love is, indeed, strange.

Older & Prouder and Elders Voice are teaming up with The Lexi Cinema to bring you a series of LGBT+ films. There will be three films over three months, focusing on, and celebrating the lives of the LGBT+ community on screen. These events are aimed at the older LGBT+ community, but we also welcome allies.

Older & Prouder also promotes safe spaces for all and we have a zero tolerance policy on discrimination and prejudice, based on – but not limited to – culture, ethnicity, sex, sexuality, gender, gender identity, gender expression, disability and age. We want everyone to feel welcome, safe and respected in our spaces at all times.
