A new trailer for the biopic Tom of Finland, based on the life of homoerotic artist Touko Valio Laaksonen, known as Tom of Finland is here. It’s the country’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film for the 2018 Oscars.
Laaksonen made a name for himself as an artist and his subjects were mainly homoerotic, macho, leather-clad, hyper-sexualized men.
When he eventually moves to America, Laaksonen finds a new group of men who love and admire his work. It’s super-sexy –how could it not be?
Dome Karukoski directed Pekka Strang as Laaksonen. The film already gets a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes.
