We don’t mean to tell you what to do, but you should definitely quit whatever it is you are currently occupied with and march to the nearest cinema to watch Love Is Strange. Just sayin’.
The film follows Ben (John Lithgow) and his partner George (Alfred Molina), who finally tie the knot after four decades together but are then separated when the latter loses his job and the couple is forced to temporarily live apart, since they can no longer afford their apartment. The couple must then cope with living separately whilst dealing with the seemingly dysfunctional lives of their new “roommates.” Don’t be shy — check out the trailer below:

The striking resonance of the subject matter with the majority of the public is what caught our eye in the first place. Everyone struggles with accepting others, for whatever reasons, without losing themselves in the process. The way Love Is Strange intimately and delicately unfolds the subject is just beautiful!
Luckily we’re not alone in this opinion. The film hit theatres on Friday and currently holds a rating of 96 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes. The critics praised the approach of the film and the performances of Lithgow and Molina, claiming it is their best work to date. If that’s not enough to make you run to the cinema, then we’re worried about your sanity.
So go see the movie, be amazed, and tell us what you thought!
