Tom of Finland

Dome KarukoskiDome Karukoski’s stirring biopic follows the life of artist Touko Laaksonen who is best known as “Tom of Finland” from the trenches of WWII and repressive Finnish society of the 1950s through his struggle to get his work published in California, where he and his art were finally embraced amid the sexual revolution of the 1970s. Tom’s story mirrors the gay liberation movement for which his leather-clad studs served as a defiant emblem.

Tom of Finland opens in New York on October 13 and October 20 in both San Francisco and Los Angeles before expanding to select cities.
