LaBruce’s first film with an actual budget reflects that – both in terms of cinematography and more conventional plot structure. But flirtations with the mainstream end here as hot young Lake gets a job in an elderly care home and discovers an unexpected sexual attraction to the elderly. When he falls for for 81-year-old Mr. Peabody, the two break free and hit the road for a sweet, moving road trip with a geriatric twist. Applause to Mr. LaBruce for bringing uncharted territories to a (hopefully) wider audience.
