Join us for drinks and a screening of “Stranger By The Lake”, a chillingly seductive psychological thriller full of razor-sharp suspense and an abundance of stylish eroticism.
Frank spends his summer days hopelessly searching for companionship at a cruising spot on the shores of a lake in rural France. One day, he meets Michel, an attractive yet darkly mysterious man and falls blindly in love. When a death occurs, Frank and Michel become the primary suspects – but they choose to ignore the dangers and instead continue to engage in their passionate and potentially lethal relationship. Stranger By The Lake is an erotic thriller that tests the lengths and limits of sexual desire and hearkens back to an era of daring cinema too rarely seen today.

“A stunning minimalist erotic thriller that explores with arresting photography and economical use of dialogue how human identity is defined, and sometimes imprisoned, by our desires, drives, and passions.” – Philadelphia Enquirer
