Gabrielle

Canada (Québec) | 2013 | 102 minutes | Louise Archambault

Gerontophilia

Canada | 2013 | 90 minutes | Bruce LaBruce

An 18-year-old lad with a penchant for pensioners takes a job in a care home and falls for an 81-year-old man. Shocking? The big shock here is that director LaBruce eschews his usual hardcore style for a film that is positively gentle and pleasing.
