La Leon Film Poster


Argentine drama about the relationship between a gay fieldworker and a brutish ferry captain. Alvaro (Jorge Roman) lives a quiet, lonely existence in an isolated area of Argentina, working as a fisherman and reed cutter. His homosexuality and love of literature make him the target of local bully, El Turu (Daniel Valenzuela), who captains the town ferry. As the film progresses, El Turu's repressed attraction to the bookish outsider becomes apparent.
