Directed by Dome Karukoski, Tom of Finland tells the story of Finnish artist Touko Laaksonen, better known as "Tom of Finland."
Although there have been other films that tell Laaksonen's story this is the first to be officially sanctioned by the Tom Finland Foundation.
“This is the story of a man ahead of his time, bravely standing up against a world virulently against his right to be who he was—a homosexual man with homosexual fantasies,” Karukoski told Deadline. “The story shows how literally one person can create change in the world, even with something as simple as an artist’s tools.”
The movie is set to be released February 27, 2017.
