Holding Trevor

Holding Trevor Release Date: July 4, 2008

Everybody’s looking for something. This much is true. And Trevor Holden (Brent Gorski) 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 Darrell. And despite the well-meaning advice offered by his sexually pervasive best friend and his self-righteous roommate Andie, Trevor still seems to come up short. Almost ready to throw in the towel, Trevor meets the ever so charming Ephram. Simply being everything that Darrell is not wins Ephram a number of points up-front. Trevor’s relationship with Ephram progresses rather quickly, and it starts to put a strain on his friendships with Jake and Andie, both of whom feel Trevor could stand to be a little more in tune with their feelings. “Holding Trevor” is a sometimes funny, sometimes scathing inspection of a group of friends and lovers that offers a prescient and biting analysis of men and women struggling to make sense of their lives and relationships, all the while reaching every which way but into their own hearts to do so. 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 twenty-somethings of today while letting other generations in on the joke.
