Described as a gay Harold and Maude, the film follows Lake, a young man who takes a job in a nursing home and develops a romantic and sexual attraction to Mr. Peabody, a senior citizen resident in the facility. Unlike most of LaBruce's earlier films, Gerontophilia is not sexually explicit; instead, LaBruce chose to adapt his traditional themes of sexual taboo into a film more palatable to a mainstream audience.

    Bruce LaBruce gave Gerontophilia an almost timeless appearance, creating a 1970s atmosphere by shooting the film with an ARRI Alexis whilst using some Zeiss prime lenses from the era.

    Critical reception

    Dave Croyle of Gay Essential in his review of the film stated that it was "A captivating story of love, loss, and personal exploration."

    Rakesh Ramchurn of The Independent commented "It is rare that I would salute a predominantly underground director’s move towards mainstream film making, but by toning down the sex and nudity of his previous works, LaBruce has made a film that I hope will be enjoyed by wide audiences in the months to come."
