Bruce LaBruce tenderly tells the story of 18-year-old Lake, who discovers his fondness for older men - a romantic road movie. "The sweet romantic comedy GERONTOPHILIA is a change of pace for controversial Canadian auteur Bruce LaBruce (PIERROT LUNAIRE) from his usual trash and explicit sex. But LaBruce wouldn’t La Bruce if he didn’t break a taboo in this film: love and intimacy between an elderly person and those barely out of their teens. "Bruce LaBruce's new feature is a tastefully observed indie romance." (NY Times) In this wry "reverse Lolita" tale, 18-year-old Lake discovers he has an unusual attraction for the elderly. Lake is in a straight relationship with Desiree but finds himself becoming attracted to men at the pool.
