Film Friday: Love is Strange

Plot: In Love is Strange, a recently married gay couple (Alfred Molina & John Lithgow) struggle when one of them is fired from their job at a Catholic school. They are forced to look for somewhere cheaper to live, and end up sleeping on couches of friends and family in different parts of New York city.
Fun facts: Ben (John Lithgow) plays a painter, and the paintings in the film were done by director Ira Sachs's real life husband.
Overall: At first I wasn't sure whether to persevere with Love is Strange as I found the couple's friends and families quite selfish and mean, but as the film progressed the story evolved and I really enjoyed this sweet and understated drama, which led to a very moving ending.
