NEW YORK, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- Oscar-winning actress Marisa Tomei has joined the cast of director Ira Sachs' indie film "Love is Strange," which is to start shooting this month in New York.

Tomei will co-star with the previously announced John Lithgow and Alfred Molina in the movie about a recently married gay couple's forced separation.

"Marisa brings an intelligence, warmth, and graceful humor to everything she does," Sachs said in a statement Wednesday. "From our first meeting, it was clear that in her hands, the role of Kate would resonate deeply with audiences. She elevates all of us involved to be at our very best."

The character of Kate is described as "a novelist married to Lithgow's nephew, who lets his uncle move in with them after he's forced to sell his small apartment."

Tomei's film credits include "Parental Guidance," "The Ides of March," "Crazy, Stupid, Love," "The Wrestler," "In the Bedroom," "My Cousin Vinny" and "Untamed Heart."
