Watch: ‘Love Is Strange’ Trailer Starring John Lithgow, Alfred Molina

Love Is Strange,” which stars John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, doesn’t have the set up you’d expect for a film about a newlywed couple. Instead, the film is about a recently married same-sex couple adjusting to separate living situations.

The modern-day love story centers on Ben, a Catholic school teacher (Molina) who is fired after he and his partner George (Lithgow) are legally married in New York. The cash-strapped couple is forced to separate and live with neighbors and family members. The film’s trailer depicts how their long-distance love is tested in unconventional ways. It also highlights the changing dynamics between George and Ben and the people who welcome them into their homes.

The film debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Director Ira Sachs has also made “Lady” and “Keep the Lights On.”

Love Is Strange” will hit theaters Aug. 22.
