Love is Strange – A Movie You Shouldn’t Miss

Love is Strange deserved an Oscar nod.

IMDB – ‘After Ben and George get married, George is fired from his teaching post, forcing them to stay with friends separately while they sell their place and look for cheaper housing — a situation that weighs heavily on all involved.

Just finished watching this beautiful movie tonight. It’s so refreshing to see a movie conveying a heck of a lot without trying to shove it down the viewer’s throat. Music was sublime, cinematography outstanding and acting – all top notch. Unlikely to see better movies than this – in the Oscar year just gone – besides perhaps Birdman, Ida, Boyhood, Hotal Budapest and Whiplash. Love is Strange should be counted amongst these greats. I think time will treat this movie quite kindly.

The film’s use of Chopin’s Berceuse and other Chopin pieces was absolutely magical.

I think the music enhanced the action in the film enormously. And the scene in which Molina’s piano student played Chopin’s Raindrop Etude was incredible. It told us so much about Molina’s character and it was exquisite to watch.
