Special Offsite Event! The Cinematheque at the Film Festival

Stranger by the Lake

L'inconnu Du Lac
France | 2013 | Alain Guiraudie

Stranger by the Lake

Once again the Cinematheque partners with the Cleveland Int’l Film Festival on one of their films showing at Tower City Cinemas downtown. This year’s co-presentation is one of 2014’s most acclaimed must-see movies, which (as this is written) has a perfect 100% “fresh” rating on! Stranger by the Lake is set on the banks of a peaceful, secluded body of water in rural France, where gay men spend the summer cruising for companionship. One of these men, Franck, finds himself drawn to an attractive and mysterious stranger who emanates danger and may even be a killler. Perversely, this does not dampen Franck’s desire. Alain Guiraudie’s breakthrough work is a taut, cinematic thriller that evokes Hitchcock and Polanski. “A cautionary tale about finding love with an improper stranger.” –Time.

97 min. No one under 18 admitted! Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. Shown during the 38th Cleveland Int’l Film Festival, March 19-30 at Tower City Cinemas.
