Stranger By The Lake is one of the best gay-themed thrillers ever made (if you haven’t seen it, you really should), but it wasn’t Alain Guiraudie first look at all things gay, as back in 2009 he made King Of Escape.
However other than a couple of festival appearances, it never made it to the UK, but with the success of Stranger By The Lake, Peccadillo Pictures has decided it’s time to rectify that, setting a March 23rd DVD release for the movie.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘A film about tractors, aphrodisiacs and forbidden love from Alain Guiraudie, the Cannes Award Winning director of STRANGER BY THE LAKE.
‘Armand is a gay tractor salesman and not the sharpest tool in the shed. When he rescues Curly, the daughter of his greatest rival, the two embark on a mad chase through the forest pursued by a very angry father with a gun. Totally unknown to Armand, however, is the bizarre sexual frenzy he’s ignited in the other men in town, with him as the object of their desire!
‘Hilarious, daring and outrageously controversial, KING OF ESCAPE is a riotous French sex comedy about raising cocks in rural France.’
