  • Love Is Strange is, above all, a triumph for Lithgow and Molina, two consummate actors who bring decades of experience to artful performances that are as emotionally expressive in silence as they are in words. Acting doesn’t get better than this. Want to know what love is? Watch Lithgow and Molina and learn. show more

  • See Love Is Strange for its sensitivity and understated jokes, but mainly for Lithgow and Molina's expertly modulated work, which pulls the movie back when it threatens to stray into melodrama or heavy-handedness. show more

  • What's on screen, though, is a peculiar clutter of gentle sentiment, awkward dialogue, shaky contrivance — especially the resolution of Joey's feelings — and monotonous performances from a supporting cast that includes Marisa Tomei and Darren Burrows. show more

    Can't agree with so called "critics" who praise it to the hilt. Yes, the compelling acting kept it somewhat interesting, but it seemed like a stage play that was scene-oriented instead of a nicely flowing film story. Lots of unanswered pieces here and there as it merrily skips along with some scenes toooo long and others missing.

    Very disappointing. The story was too contrived, though the acting was good. I would not recommend it.
