Tom of Finland
The incredible story of Tom of Finland comes the big screen in Dome Karukoski’s thrilling biopic. Charting a personal journey from repressed, scarred WW2 army officer to underground-then-overground fame, the experiences of Touko ‘Tom’ Laaksonen (a towering Pekka Strang) charts the fortunes of gay men in the twentieth century, as well as how his buff, leather-clad erotic art turned the emblems of their oppressors against themselves. Finding fame and an eternal legacy, Tom’s story is one of coming out and coming to America; of biceps and heavy, heavy leather.
