When The Wedding Is Just The Beginning http://radio.wpsu.org/post/when-wedding-just-beginning Just about everything clicks in director Ira Sachs' quietly eloquent <em>Love is Strange,</em> except the title. The longtime romance of painter Ben (John Lithgow) and music teacher George (Alfred Molina) doesn't seem at all odd. The men's lives, however, do take a sudden turn away from the ordinary.<p>The story begins in a mysterious flurry of morning activity that's soon explained.

The war had started over issues of tariffs and the taking of American sailors on the high seas; by the summer of 1814, British fighters were in middle of a campaign burning and looting along the coast.<p>Unfortunately, there was no recorded sound from that time, so for help in our storytelling we imagined how NPR might have covered the burning of Washington, D.C., had we been on the scene two centuries ago.
