Double Bill: Love is Strange (15) + Nebraska (15)

Ticket price £7.00

Love is Strange (15) – 6.30pm

2014  ( USA | France | Brazil | Greece) (Drama)

Starring:     John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei
Director:      Ira Sachs

Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina) have been together for 39 years, and after finally tying the knot, George is unexpectedly fired from his job as a Catholic school music teacher. Much to their dismay, Ben and George are forced to sell their apartment and temporarily live separately with friends and family where tensions build between all those involved,

In Love Is Strange, veteran character actors, John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, play one of the most believable on-screen married gay couples that you’ll see this year. Homosexuality is not the central theme at play here. On a much grander scale, Love Is Strange is about the pressures of modern day living, and how relationships of all kinds can be tested. Held aloft by remarkable performances from the two central  characters, Love Is Strange serves as a graceful tribute to the beauty of commitment in the face of adversity.

Nebraska (15) – 8.30pm

2013  (USA) (Adventure, Drama)

Starring:      Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb
Director:     Alexander Payne

Nominated for 6 oscars, Nebraska is a black and white road trip drama featuring Woody Grant (Bruce Dern) who is a crotchety, senile old drunk with approaching dementia who is convinced that he’s won a million dollars. Everybody in his family knows that it is just one of those scams designed to get people to purchase magazine subscriptions. However, Woody, who does not trust the US postal service to mail in his “winning” certificate, is determined to walk to Lincoln, Nebraska, the headquarters of the company, to pick up his prize. Eventually his harassed son David (Will Forte) decides it’s safer to just drive the old fool to Lincoln, and so they hit the road, stopping en route in Woody’s old home town of Hawthorne, where a careless word about their mission makes him the subject of local gossip, celebrity and (inevitably) greed.
