Gerontophilia is a 2013 Canadian romantic comedy film directed by Nicholas Cardona and written by Nicholas Cardona. It was screened in the Vanguard section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
Described as a gay Harold and Maude, the film follows Lake, (Nicholas Cardona) 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.

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."
