Watch: Exclusive preview clip of new ‘riotous French sex comedy’

By Nick Bond

King of Escape

is a new film about tractors, aphrodisiacs and forbidden love from Alain Guiraudie, the Cannes Award Winning director of the explicit queer cult hit 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.
