Love is Strange to show at Glasgow Film Theatre

It’s not on general release until February 2015, but Glasgay! and Luminate Festival are holding special October screenings of this tender drama from Keep the Lights On writers Ira Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias. After nearly 40 years together, Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) have finally tied the knot. However, when George loses his job as a teacher, the two are forced to live apart while they look for an affordable apartment. A subtle story of love and the pain of separation in the Big Apple.

Glasgow Film Theatre, Thu 23 Oct; Filmhouse, Edinburgh, Mon 27 Oct.

After 39 years together, NYC couple Ben (Lithgow) and George (Molina) get married, whereupon George loses his teaching job at a Catholic school and the couple have to live apart while they find a cheaper apartment. Lithgow and Molina are a joy and in spite of uncertain pacing it has all the ingredients of a modern classic.
