After 28 years together, Ben (70) and George (60), are finally getting married, and LOVE IS STRANGE opens with their City Hall wedding in lower Manhattan. On return from their honeymoon, however, Ben gets fired from his job as a choir director for an all-boys Catholic school, and now the two men don't have enough money to stay in their small Chelsea apartment. George moves in with the two gay cops who live next door, and Ben with his nephew, a television director, and his novelist wife, who live in Brooklyn with their two children. The story follows the generational conflicts and complications that arise as the couple tries to get back together again. A love story at its heart, in the form of a social comedy, 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.
