2016/17 Season


US 2015 (15)
94 minutes

Directed by Ira Sachs

Ipswich Film Theatre - 19 December 2016 - 7.30pm

Two middle-aged gays, Ben and George, decide to make their devoted partnership of almost 40 years official. But marriage in 21st century Manhattan certainly has its challenges for them and their families. Extremely moving performances from John Lithgow and Alfred Molina.

AUDIENCE COMMENTS: Very enjoyable. Nice work from both leads; A first-hand depiction of how wide-reaching and corrosive prejudice is to its direct and indirect victims. Chopin always beautiful; Kind of affecting but as hammy as hell; Really rather tedious. Too many tiresome people. Only rescued by the two principal actors. Inappropriate intrusive piano music; What on earth happened to Uncle Ben? Still, I enjoyed seeing New York again!
