GerontophiliaBy Strand Releasing
18-year-old Lake (Pier-Gabriel Lajoie) has a sweet activist girlfriend, but one day discovers he has an unusual attraction for the elderly. Fate conspires to land him a summer job at a nursing home where he develops a tender relationship with Mr. Peabody (Walter Borden). Discovering that the patients are being over-medicated to make them easier to manage, Lake decides to wean Mr. Peabody off his medication and help him escape, resulting in a humorous and heartfelt road trip that strengthens their bond.
Reasons to Buy
- The always provocative Bruce LaBruce is back with a new romantic comedy (of sorts).
- How often do you see a romantic comedy about a teen boy and an elderly man? This is like the gay Harold and Maude (only more overtly sexual).
- Walter Borden is completely endearing as the elderly Mr. Peabody and Pier-Gabriel Lajoie is mouth-wateringly hot as his much younger admirer. I almost wish I was in my 80s so I could be more his type.
