Parts & Labor announced today that Sir Michael Gambon and Alfred Molina will star in Love is Strange, Independent Spirit Award Nominee Ira Sachs’s (Keep the Lights On) newest feature. Production is slated to begin in New York City this summer.

Gambon and Molina play Ben and George, a couple who after 28 years together, finally marry at a City Hall wedding in Manhattan. On return from their honeymoon, however, Ben gets fired from his job as a choir director for a Catholic high school. With not enough money to stay in their small apartment, the two are forced to move in, separately, with a nephew and his family in Brooklyn, and the two gay cops next door.

A multi-generational story of love and marriage, 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.

Gambon can currently be seen theatrically in Quartet, directed by Dustin Hoffman and distributed by The Weinstein Company while Molina’s latest, Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, directed by Francesca Gregorina, premieres in Competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

Sachs said: “In the wake of the personal events depicted in 'Keep the Lights On', I’ve discovered that all love doesn’t have to be so painful. Love Is Strange is my first pure love story, depicting the possibility of love to blossom and grow richer with time. Molina and Gambon will be amazing as the couple at the center of the film, bringing great depth and heart to this highly emotional story, and relationship.”

Sachs is a producer of Love is Strange, along with Parts & Labor partners, Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy (Beginners, The Loneliest Planet), as well as Lucas Joaquin (Keep the Lights On, Beasts of the Southern Wild).
