Love is Strange

Opens Friday, Aug 22, 2014 Synopsis: A committed gay couple finds their fledgling marriage challenged by a series of unexpected developments in this compassionate drama from writer/director Ira Sachs (Married Life, Keep the Lights On). Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) have been together for nearly 40 years. When gay marriage becomes legal in New York, the happy couple decides that it's finally time to tie the knot, and declare their love for one another in front of family and friends. Though the ceremony is everything Ben and George ever could have hoped for, the happy couple's newlywed bliss is sadly short-lived when the diocese receives word of the wedding, and George is fired from his job as a music teacher at a local Catholic school. As a result, the pair is no longer able to afford the rent on the New York City apartment they've shared for two decades. In order at remain in the city while searching for a job, George moves in with his sympathetic neighbors, a pair of gay policemen (Manny Perez and Cheyenne Jackson).

Now, as the big event that should have brought Ben and George closer together leads only to loneliness and frustration, everyone involved find their once-comfortable lives in a hopeless state of flux.

The Best of Me

Opens Friday, Oct 17, 2014 Synopsis: Twenty-one years after being torn apart by forces beyond their control, two lovers who have never forgotten one another get a second chance at happiness in this romantic drama from bestselling author Nicholas Sparks. Dawson (Luke Bracey) and Amanda (Liana Liberato) were just teenagers when they fell hopelessly and helplessly in love. Unfortunately for them, it just wasn't meant to be -- at least not then. Two decades later, in the wake of a mutual friend's death, Dawson (James Marsden) and Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) are reunited as adults. Their passion still burns as bright as ever, too, but just when it seems as if their happy ever after is finally within reach, they discover that the very same threat that separated them in youth has returned stronger, and more determined to divide them than ever before. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Michelle Monaghan, James Marsden, Luke Bracey, Liana Liberato, Caroline Goodall, Sebastian Arcelus, Jon Tenney, Gerald McRaney Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
