Our next film is LOVE IS STRANGE (2014). Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) get married after 28 years together. George is a Catholic school music teacher, and when word of the marriage reaches the archdiocese, he is fired. Without his salary, the couple can no longer afford their New York apartment and are forced to ask their friends and family for shelter, resulting in their separation. Ben stays in Brooklyn with his nephew Elliot, Elliot's novelist wife Kate (Marisa Tomei), and their teenage son Joey, while George bunks with former neighbors, two party-loving cops, Roberto and Ted.
"Love Is Strange" currently holds a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes; the general consensus states: "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."
Attendees will select the next film in the series, which runs every two weeks on Wednesdays at 7pm at TCC.
