GCN (Gay Community News), GAZE International LGBT Film Festival and The Irish Film Institute will present a special screening of the internationally acclaimed movie, ‘Love is Strange’ in aid of Marriage Equality.
Directed by Ira Sachs, Love Is Strange follows older Manhattan gay men, George (Alfred Molina) and Ben (John Lithgow), who decide to get married after 39 years together.
However, when the religious board in music teacher George’s Catholic school hear the news, they immediately fire him and soon the couple find themselves forced to split and turn to their family and friends for shelter.
As Ireland approaches the Same-sex Marriage Referendum next May, Love is Strange is a timely and thoughtful look at the effects of religious intolerance on lesbian and gay relationships.
GCN, GAZE and The Irish Film Institute will present a special lunchtime screening of Love is Strange this Valentine’s weekend, on Sunday February 15th at 1pm in the IFI, Eustace St, Dublin 2.
IFI Café Bar will offer glasses of glasses of Prosecco for €5 and Kir Royales for €6.50
Tickets are €10 and available from the IFI Box Office, (01) 679 3477, www.ifi.ie
