Sony Pictures Classics and Alfred Molina are set to make strange bedfellows…
The art-house film distributor has acquired the distribution rights to the gay marriage drama Love is Strange, starring the 60-year-old half-Spanish actor.
Written and directed by Ira Sachs, the film centers on two longtime gay lovers who finally get married. One of them then gets fired and is unable to pay the rent. The couple must move in, separately, with a nephew and his family in Brooklyn and the two gay cops next door.
Along with Molina, the film also stars John Lithgow, Manny Pérez, Kelly Reilly, Tracy Letts, Marisa Tomei and Cheyenne Jackson.
The film received a strong response from the audience when it premiered earlier this year at the Eccles Theater.
The film has also garnered a French distribution deal with Pretty Pictures.
