Movie Info

Everybody's looking for something. Trevor Holden is desperately looking for himself in all the wrong places--or maybe just in all the wrong people. It's pretty safe to say that he won't find enlightenment in his strung-out boyfriend. And, despite the well-meaning advice offered by his sexually promiscuous best friend and his self-righteous roommate, Trevor still seems to come up short. Almost ready to throw in the towel, Trevor happens upon Mr. Right, who refuses to let Trevor give up just yet. But, sometimes, a step in the right direction means forging a whole new path. "Holding Trevor" is continually poignant, relentlessly self-deprecating, and just the type of cerebral dark comedy that can speak directly to the 20-somethings of today while letting other generations in on the joke.

Critic Reviews for Holding Trevor

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

Trying to plumb beneath the usual emotional shallows of twentysomething L.A. gay life, Holding Trevor sometimes succeeds, but mostly comes off as a vanity project for writer-star Brent Gorski.

Top Critic

Holding Trevor, a portrait of 20-something gay men and their straight friends, is a joyless exploration of middle-class deadbeats.

Such an anomie-filled nothing of a movie that it wouldn't even be a pleasure to savage it.

This stuff is too easy to find on daytime TV.

In Holding Trevor, there's a depressed form of anger bubbling beneath the surface.

Brings back bad memories of Nearing Grace while tainting fond ones of Catcher in the Rye.

Audience Reviews for Holding Trevor

Everyone is having menstruation in this film. A pretentious film about a man who can't choose between staying with his drug addict lover or move on with a handsome doctor. At the same time, his slutty friend and their faghag are telling consoling him to make his decision. Yeh Jay Brannan can sing beautifully but the acting was dreadful (almost entirely non-existent) The storyline was really silly, there was no drama, just bitching.
