A film about tractors, aphrodisiacs and forbidden love from Alain Guiraudie, the Cannes Award Winning director of STRANGER BY THE LAKE.

Armand is a gay tractor salesman and not the sharpest tool in the shed. When he rescues Curly, the daughter of his greatest rival, the two embark on a mad chase through the forest pursued by a very angry father with a gun. Totally unknown to Armand, however, is the bizarre sexual frenzy he’s ignited in the other men in town, with him as the object of their desire…

Hilarious, daring and outrageously controversial, KING OF ESCAPE is a riotous French sex comedy about raising cocks in rural France.

  • "A bumptious yet tender comedy."
    -New Yorker
  • "Like a rowdy, rude house-guest that you'll end up remembering over the well-behaved."
  • "Weaving numerous influences into a rich emotional tapestry, Alain Guiraudie's KING OF ESCAPE skillfully absorbs and updates its assertive cinematic forebears."
    -Village Voice
