Love is Strange, 2014 – ★★★★★

Every aspect of this film is on point. The overall effect being that you may be unsure whether you’re even watching a film – this is life unfolding before you.

The emotion feels real and raw. The relationships (all of them) are both simple and complex. At the centre, the characters of George and Ben are wonderfully written and masterfully brought to life by Alfred Molina and John Lithgow.

What’s been stuck in my head since seeing it is this: love isn’t strange, love is beautiful.
