Wex screens Touko Laaksonen biopic

This Dome Karukoski-directed biopic examines the cultural influence of Touko Laaksonen, known colloquially as Tom of Finland, whose highly stylized and erotic drawings helped shape 20th-century gay culture. Embraced initially by fetishists and the gay underground, Laaksonen's work gained wider appeal later in his life. This film is Finland's official entry for Oscar consideration.
