This film is so dear to me, like a precious gift given by someone you greatly admired from afar but never thought you would meet, and then you do and they surprise you with this most wonderful and loving gift. That's what this film is to me, my gift - and now, I give it to you...

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!"
