TOM OF FINLAND

Finland | 2017 | Dome Karukoski

TOM OF FINLAND

A gay WWII vet and advertising designer in homophobic postwar Finland finds escape and solace by making private drawings of hot, muscular, well-endowed gay men. Eventually these idealized pictures are published in the U.S., countering the stereotype of gays as “sissies” and advancing 50s-60s leather and motorcycle culture. This is a biopic of Touko Laaksonen (1920-1991), who became the influential artist Tom of Finland. “A good, strong movie.” –San Francisco Chronicle. Subtitles. DCP. 115 min.
