PARK CITY, Utah - John Lithgow and Alfred Molina fell in love while making the film "Love is Strange."

The veteran actors play 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 said he and Molina had been friends for years but never worked together. He said the process of making this intimate film "was just like falling in love with this man."
