A multi-generational story of love and marriage, LOVE IS STRANGE depicts the delicate nature of any two people trying to build a long life together, and the possibility of love to grow deeper, and richer, with time.
After 39 years together, Ben and George take advantage of the new marriage laws and tie the knot in a City Hall wedding in lower Manhattan. On the return from their honeymoon, however, and on account of their vows, George gets fired from his longtime job as a choir director for a co-ed Catholic school. Suddenly, with no real savings to count on, the couple finds that they can’t afford the rent on their small Chelsea apartment.
As a short-term solution, George moves in with the gay cops next door, and Ben moves in with his nephew Elliot, a television director, and his wife Kate, a novelist, in the Park Slope apartment they share with their teenage son. As the two men face the bureaucracy and discomfort of getting a new apartment — and the challenges of living apart after decades spending every night together — their presence in the two households ultimately has subtle and unforeseen effect on the lives and relationships of all involved.
