Stranger by the Lake

L'inconnu Du Lac
France | 2013 | Alain Guiraudie

Stranger by the Lake

One of the most talked about and debated films from this year's Cleveland Int'l Film Festival is also one of the most acclaimed movies of the past year, with a 95% "fresh" rating on Alain Guiraudie's breakthrough work is a lean thriller set at an isolated lake in rural France, where gay men sunbathe in the buff and cruise for love and companionship. One young man finds himself inexorably drawn to a mysterious, gorgeous hunk who looks a bit like Mark Spitz—and may be a killer.

97 min. No one under 18 admitted! Subtitles. Blu-ray. Alain Guiraudie’s 2009 film The King of Escape, made right before this one, plays 5/11.
