Irish Premiere of "The King of Escape" by Alain Guiraudie
As part of the GAZE International LGBT Film Festival (31 July – 5 August), Film Qlub presents a special screening of The Kind of Escape/ Le Roi de l’evasion by Director Alain Guiraudie (Stranger By The Lake).
A chubby gay tractor-salesman yearning for romance is having a middle-age crisis: maybe he should get fit, go straight, settle down, get a wife and kids, live a normal life. So how on earth does he end up rocketing through the French countryside fuelled by magic mushrooms, accused of abducting a teenage girl, with the police and a bunch of gay tractor- salesmen in hot pursuit?
The King of Escape has a comic book quality and it shows that, no matter how hard you try, you cannot escape who you are.
