Enjoyed this movie. A true life story. An educational movie which shows how one mistake can end one's life.

I knew virtually nothing about this film or the people behind it. Just that it was based on a memoir of the same name by Timothy Conigrave. Goodness! Let me caution you, it is an emotional tour de force and runs through a gamut of emotions. By the end of Holding the Man, I felt like I had lived a life alongside the characters and became friends. If you are a fan of HBO's Looking series, or are in search of an honest and real depiction of a gay relationship then you must know this film.

Devastatingly beautiful and incredibly well acted. What a valuable film. Like the other reviewer said, "We cried!"
