PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — John Lithgow said playing Alfred Molina's longtime lover in the film "Love is Strange" was "just like falling in love with this man."

The veteran actors portray a couple who marry after 39 years together in the Ira Sachs film that premiered Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival.

Once wed, one of the men loses his job as a music instructor at a Catholic school and the couple is forced to sell their apartment to survive financially. They end up living apart, staying with friends and family until they can remedy their situation.

Lithgow and Molina have been friends for 20 years but this is the first time they have worked together.
