Event description

Description

Synopsis

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 bunk bed. While struggling with the pain of separation, Ben and George are further challenged by the intergenerational tensions and capricious family dynamics of their new living arrangements.

Directed by Ira Sachs (KEEP THE LIGHTS ON, FORTY SHADES OF BLUE), LOVE IS STRANGE blends the romance of New York City's streets and skyline with a delicate Chopin piano score to poignantly capture both the lightness and sorrows of this modern-day love story.

Praise

“This is the real world of middle class New York as it has rarely been depicted” - The New York Times

“In a summer of movie romances, Love Is Strange is the one that cuts deepest. Without the usual bull and spackled-on sentiment, it hits you like a shot in the heart.” Rolling Stone

Duration: 94 mins

Beginning in March, the admission price of FilmYard screenings will be raised from $6.00 to $8.00. (Please keep in mind that Eventbrite charges an additional $1.07 per ticket). ArtYard is committed to providing affordable creative programming, and the new price is still lower than any comparable offering in our area. In the last six months, we have made many improvements, including building a new screen, installing more comfortable seats, upgrading the projection and sound equipment, and hiring a professional projectionist. While an $8.00 ticket does not begin to cover these costs, we believe it will help us move toward our goal of making ArtYard financially sustainable in the long term. Thank you for your support!
