A NEW PATH BEGINS WITH A SINGLE STEP

A moving and funny drama about growing up and breaking free, 'Holding Trevor' is the story of a beautiful and intelligent gay twenty-something (screenwriter Brent Gorski) who vows to take his life in a brand new direction. After breaking up with old-boyfriend with bad habits (Shortbus'
Jay Brannan), Trevor faces the challenge of a mature relationship with Ephram, an ambitious medical intern. Rich in emotion and detail, 'Holding Trevor' is an unforgettable portrait of figuring where we fit in.

Also, I didn't feel that anything was resolved by the end of the film: it just stopped.

The audience has to work a bit at intuiting reasons why the characters continue to like each other as much as they do.

Good acting and production values make this film a good choice for an evening of entertainment.

Trevor is an intelligent, sweet twentysomething gay boy in L.A., working in a dead-end job as a answering service operator, sharing an apartment with a straight female roommate, and devoting too much time to a co-dependent relationship with an ex, a drug addict. His best friend Jake (Jay Brannan from "Shortbus") is pushing Trevor to move on, and is happy when his pal meets Ephram (Eli Kranski), a hunky medical intern who seems to be genuinely in love with him. Ultimately, Trevor realizes his life is perpetually "on hold," and he needs to be the one to effect the changes he knows need to be made.

Kind of a preachy vanity project for writer/producer/star Brent Gorski, but saved somewhat by genuinely likeable characters who support each other emotionally, with noticeable but minimal overacting. Well made, considering the low budget, and could be a boost for others who feel they need to make changes in their lives. A 2007 film made for Here!TV, and occasionally on their On-Demand schedule. DVD extras include only a theatrical trailer and stills. I give it three stars out of five.

I really wanted to like this movie, but it just isn't that good. Some of the dialogue was very good and funny, especially the banter between the best friends. But overall, the movie had a sad and depressing look and feel to it. Hopefully, this isn't the way most LA twentysomethings live their lives.
Also, I didn't feel that anything was resolved by the end of the film: it just stopped. No happy ending here.
If you're into low budget and depressing movies, this one is for you. If you're looking for an entertaining, feel good, romantic comedy, this is definitely not for you.

Holding Trevor seems to be something that's impossible to do. Trevor, played brilliantly by Brent Gorski, is a puppy-dog eyed twentysomething, with an overwhelming fear of commitment. He meets Ephram, a handsome intern, at a really awkward stage in his life. Trevor has just ended a relationship with a guy who was an addict with suicidal tendencies. The only thing that had been keeping them together was Trevor's pity for this adorable loser. Trevor is also fighting an identity crisis of sorts. With no stable relationships in his life, except those with a few friends, and no meaningful career or personal goals, Trevor is feeling lost and insecure.

Trevor's best friend, Jake, played by the amazing Jay Brannan, takes life much less seriously. Jake is supportive of any decisions Trevor makes, and buoys his spirits when he's down, with humour and the kind of teasing sarcasm that only best friends can share. But ultimately Jake is unable to do much besides watch impotently as Trevor struggles with his life and his demons. Meanwhile Ephram is falling madly in love with Trevor, and is growing frustrated that Trevor is unable to return his affection.

The end is something of a disappointment, and a triumph, as Trevor is finally able to release some of the ghosts in his past that have held him back, and sadly bids farewell to Ephram, who must reluctantly go on with his own life without Trevor at his side.

This isn't a fast paced action movie. Nor is it wildly funny or romantic. It has a somewhat pedantic pace, and every scene is packed with restrained emotion and repressed desires. You have to sort of study this movie to derive it's full meaning. It isn't handed to you in a neat, simple package. But it's well worth watching more than once.

Format: DVD
A small film about love but though it is interesting, there are many shortcomings.

The first one is that there are a greaT number of scenes in very dark atmosphere, I mean lacking lighting and that creates a sombre atmosphere that is not in touch with the subject.

The second is that Trevor's psychology is not very constructive. He seems to be going through a rejection phase. He has made a choice and that choice turns sour. So he rejects everything and everyone when he is most needed and as if he had no responsibility in what is happening around him. In other words he is an escapist.

One of his friend and, ex-boyfriend, is on drugs and Trevor is satisfied with knowing that he is on methadone and he does not want to have anything to do with him any more, and he is brutal about it. His brutality ruins the party of his female room mate and he does not seem to give a damn and he even insults this room mate when she protests.

Another shortcoming is the fact that the gay scene, and more widely the young people's sex scene is seen as being intertwined with binge drinking and drug addiction, with irresponsibility in such states that makes you take risks and play it bareback instead of safe. It is the female room mate who falls in that trap and she gets HIV positive of course. Slightly superficial and easy and hardly pedagogical about the problem.

Trevor insists, even too much, on his father as a negative castrator and depriver and frustrater, etc, that forced him all the time to leave what he liked behind and yet this father is magically regenerated when it is needed with a sentence that is more than surprising: when you go away you don't have to leave things behind, or something like that.
