Tim and John fell in love and embarked on a forbidden high school romance that was to last a lifetime. Together they conquered countless prejudices and challenges to become champions of gay rights. 'Holding the Man' is a remarkable true-life love story of Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo and their enduring love for each other has been immortalised in Tim's own cult classic memoir and in Tommy Murphy's award winning stage play, which has now been adapted for the screen.
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.
