Ira Sachs' acclaimed Sundance drama "Love is Strange" has been acquired by Sony Pictures Classics. The drama stars John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as a longtime couple who lose their New York City home shortly after getting married. The film co-stars Marisa Tomei, Darren Burrows, Charlie Tahan and Cheyenne Jackson. Sony Pictures Classics previously distributed Sachs' "Married Life" in 2007.
"I'm thrilled to be working with Michael, Tom and Dylan again," said Sachs, "What was clear from our meetings is that they understand the film as a New York love story anchored by two powerhouse performances by Lithgow and Molina."
"Filmmaker Ira Sachs, one of our most acute observers of humanity in modern times, has made his most accomplished film featuring two of the greatest actors in the English speaking world at the peak of their form. It is a privilege to collaborate with them on releasing 'Love is Strange," said Sony Pictures Classics.
