Sex, Drugs, HIV & Relationship...

Intimate, fresh and raw, Rosser Goodman's debut film is the captiva- ting tale of handsome young Trevor (Brent Gorski) and his friends at a pivotal moment in their lives.

Trevor (screenwriter Brent Gorski) is young, cute, and intelligent. Yet he's embroiled in an unhealthy codependent relationship with on-again/ off-again boyfriend, Darrell (Christopher Wyllie), a heroine addict. Furthermore, he's trapped in a mindless and soul-sucking customer service job that leaves him comfortably numb. His relationship with his friends Andie (Melissa Searing), a clothing designer and Jake (Jay Brannan, Shortbus), a musician and proud sex addict are strained and estranged by Trevor's inability to move forward.

While rescuing Darrell from a (yet again) heroine overdose, he meets Ephram (Eli Kranski), a tall, dark, handsome medical intern. As Trevor moves closer to Ephram and further away from Darrell, he's poised for positive change. As Andie and Jake's problems percolate, unbeknownst to Trevor, Darrell makes a final attempt to 'hold onto' Trevor. As Trevor's world unravels, will he discover that some people are too precious to abandon and some souls are too tormented to save?

With its excellent soundtrack of original songs, crisp direction and great look (not to mention my beloved Jay Brannan), Holding Trevor, opening on July 4th at NY and LA, is one of the strongest films in a year rich with queer cinematic jewels!
