Better than Brokeback Mountain!!
- Holding the Man review by KP
A TRUE STORY of love between two besotted friends. Their love affair starts at school, and shows their lives up to their untimely ends. Fantastically acted by all the cast, there's true feeling in the emotions the characters portray on screen. Much better than that Brokeback Mountain film any day. 10/10
More like this please. A good story and a perfect collection of acting ability. This is what movies are about.
