A Reverse Lolita or Gerontophilia – LGBT Film

Bruce LaBruce’s new film Gerontophilia poses an interesting question. What happens when an 18 year old boy discovers he has a fetish for the aged and gets a job in a nursing home? This appears to be more than just a ‘daddy complex’ film. The young man is straight but develops an intimate relationship with an old man, setting them off on a journey of escape and illumination.  It’s already being labelled as a gay Harold & Maude, but personally I’m hoping for a bit more than that. We’ll have to wait and see. You can see Bruce LaBruce’s video message below and you can learn a little more about the film on Indiegogo
