John Lithgow, Alfred Molina Discuss their Gay Marriage Drama ‘Love is Strange’ (VIDEO)

John Lithgow and Alfred Molina recently dropped by the Variety Studio to discuss their same-sex relationship drama “Love is Strange” at the Sundance Film Festival.

“Half the world is going to love this,” Lithgow said. “The other half needs to see it.”

Directed by Ira Sachs, “Love is Strange” tells the story of lovers Ben and George, who, after 39 years together, finally tie the knot in an idyllic wedding ceremony in lower Manhattan.

“The movie is really about the consequences of that,” Molina said.

“It was one of the best scripts I’ve read since ‘Terms of Endearment,” Lithgow added.

The Sundance festival, long a top venue for gay-themed cinema, this year offered a documentary on the legal battle over gay marriage in California (“The Case Against 8”) as well as a drama about a transgender man in New Mexico (“Drunktown’s Finest”).
