Tom of Finland

Dome Karukoski, Finland, 2017

115 min.FeatureDrama

Tom of Finland is a story about a man, an artist, ambition and the desire to make the world a better place for oneself as well as for others. Inevitably it also is a statement in the debate about the rights of sexual minorities. A film about how important it is for us to find a home and a family that accepts us and that we want to belong to. Only then can we blossom.
