Gerontophilia

Join Indievents and Club David Wednesday, June 3rd, for the South Dakota Premiere of Gerontophilia.

The always provocative Bruce LaBruce is back with a new romantic comedy (of sorts).

In this wry "reverse Lolita" tale, 18-year-old Lake has a sweet activist girlfriend, but one day discovers he has an unusual attraction for the elderly. Fate conspires to land him a job at a nursing home where he develops a tender relationship with Mr. Peabody. 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. The always-provocative Bruce LaBruce returns with a delicately perverse romantic comedy that is both darkly humorous and emotionally heartfelt.

"Warmhearted, sexually explicit, and tender" - Richard Brody, The New Yorker
