Stranger by the Lake (100 mins)
Alain Guiraudie’s acclaimed mystery-thriller is set in a gay cruising ground in Southern France. The appearance of a handsome stranger stirs the passions of a young man, whose obsession continues even after the new arrival appears to have committed a violent crime. It’s a fascinating mix of thriller, comedy, explicit sex and escalating terror, and won two awards at the Cannes Film Festival.
