Bruce LaBruce’s New Film About An 18-Year Old Falling For An 81-Year Old: VIDEO

Writer, filmmaker and provocateur Bruce LaBruce has debuted the trailer for his new film, “Gerontophilia,” that follows an 18-year old boy, Lake, as he realizes he has a fetish for older men and subsequently takes a job at a retirement home. Once there, Lake falls for the 81-year old Mr. Peabody and breaks him free from the shackles of assisted living once he learns that the facility is purposefully over-medicating their patients. LaBruce told Vocativ.com that the film was inspired by his friend Marcus Ewert, who began a love affair at seventeen with the much older famous Beat poet Allen Ginsberg:

"I liked the notion that, in a way, [Ewert] had sacrificed himself on the altar of these great artists by offering his body and soul to them. But beyond that, I was sure he also found them sexually stimulating because of their wisdom and stature, and also because he felt an empathy for someone in that stage of their life who might not have easy access to the sexual vigor of the youthful and the beautiful."

Daniel Radcliffe on the Physical Pain of Gay Sex and the Heartbreaking Task of Finding Yourself: VIDEO

Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe gives a great interview to Flaunt about Kill Your Darlings, in which he plays beat poet Allen Ginsberg.

Says Radcliffe about playing gay:

“I don’t think there’s any difference between how one falls in love. People express love differently, person to person, but it’s not gender or sexuality related. The only difference it made was obviously the actual sex scene, of course…”

...I was talked through it by the director. He would be telling me what I would be feeling in each take. Basically, gay sex, especially for the first time, is really f**king painful. And [Krokidas] said that he had never seen that portrayed accurately on film before. He wanted it to look like an authentic loss of virginity. The transformative thing about the role wasn’t playing such a famous character or playing a character that had such a huge influence on society. It was more of trying to find your voice, and finding out who you are. It’s usually an awful and very painful journey, and it has to be—it involves getting heartbroken or failing at something that you want to succeed at. Those are important things to go through, and that was the thing that attracted me to the part.”
