Love Is Strange (2014)

Director: Ira Sachs. Cast: John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei. 94 min. Rated R. Drama.

An aging gay couple have a public marriage ceremony, and as a result, the partner supporting the union loses his job. After that ... nothing really happens - and I mean nothing significant happens that's specific to a gay couple. They lose their home and life like any other heterosexual couple who might lose their job. So I'm not even sure what was the point of having them be gay. And then there are subplots that entirely distract from the main story. Forget the 94% approval; for a tremendously better picture about the issues of homosexual couples, watch this.

Medical goof: A full-thickness rotator cuff tear and a complete rotator cuff tear are not the same.
