Book cinema tickets for Tom of Finland


Tom of Finland, with its butch male figures in sexualised situations, is a defining portrait of 1970s-80s gay imagery. For its creator Touko Laaksonen (Pekka Strang), the images began as sketches sold in secret to underground fanzines, before being discovered in America and consequently catapulting him to stardom. This delightful, fascinating biopic follows Laaksonen from WWII soldier struggling to hide his sexuality, to gay icon in the leather bars of New York via love, loss and prejudice. Dome Karukoski's outstanding depiction of one man, his art, and their place in modern history.
