18th UK Jewish Film Festival

Love is Strange


Ira Sachs follows up last year’s acclaimed, Keep the Lights On, with another take on modern love. Acting veterans John Lithgow and Alfred Molina star as Ben and George, a Manhattan couple who are finally given the opportunity to make their union official. But when Ben loses his teaching job as a result, the relationship is tested in unconventional ways—leaving them to more strongly rely on their love to hold things together.

Friends From France


Set at the height of the Cold War, this suspense-filled drama tells the story of Carole (Soko) and Jerome (Jérémie Lippmann), French cousins posing as young lovers on an organised trip to Odessa and their attempt to help ’Refuseniks’—Jews persecuted by the Soviet regime for wanting to leave the country. While Carole is driven by her political ambitions and taste for danger, Jerome is stirred by feelings of passion for Carole. They enter a world filled with drugs, sex, and violence that neither is prepared for.
