    A gay couple is forced to move into separate apartments when their marriage threatens the sensibilities of one's employer. An acting master class by John Lithgow and Alfred Molina with a fine supporting performance by Marissa Tomei highlight this softly moving story. The main conflicts are sometimes funny and sometimes quite dramatic and always genuine. Both main characters' loneliness figures prominently in the film's action, and its rendering is quite touching. While the film is "issue-driven," dealing with the injustices inflicted against gays and the affordability of real estate in Manhattan, it stays focused on the characters, which is its primary strength. Overall, Lithgow and Molina together create a gem.

    Two old friends have decided to play a gay married couple and the results are outstanding. A forced separation and imposition on even those closest to them results in a tension remarkable played upon by two heavyweights - Lithgow and Molina

    A heartbreaking, inspiring and timely depiction of family, love and relationships in myriad forms. Understated but powerful performances, delivered with dignity and all the failings humankind is subject to, reflecting the often unforeseen human costs of injustice. A superb family drama. This film shows that love is not as strange as the the people who love -- or as beautiful.
