About Stranger by the Lake/L'Inconnu du lac

Year Released:
Drama, Thriller
Winner of both the Queer Palm and the Best Director award in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes 2013, Alain Guiraudie’s explicit erotic thriller is a Hitchcockian combination of high-wire tension and psychological exploration. Every day during the hot summer, Franck drives to the small beach that functions as the local cruising ground. He is soon drawn to an attractive older man, but the limits of his desire are tested after he witnesses a murder. Contains mature content, including graphic nudity and violence. (2K DCP presentation)

Presented in partnership with the Bloomington PRIDE Film Festival.
