John Lithgow and Alfred Molina play a
gay couple that get married in the upcoming dramatic comedy Love
When Ben (played by Lithgow) and
George (Molina) get married in Manhattan after 39 years together, Ben
loses his job as a longtime choir director for a co-ed Catholic
school. Friends and family come together to help the couple get back
on their feet.
The film is directed by Ira Sachs.
“The consequences of this marriage is
one of the men loses his job, and that sets off the rest of the
events of the film,” Sachs
“This is a sweet film, and I found
two actors who, in a way, some of their best-known work has been
playing gay men. Really, what I got was two of the best actors of
their generation who responded emotionally to the story that was
told,” Sachs added.
Marisa Tomei and Cheyenne Jackson also
star in the film expected to debut next year.
