Holding Trevor (2007)

Director: Rosser Goodman

Stars: Brent Gorski, Christopher Wyllie, Melissa Searing, Jay Brannan

Trevor Holden has just witnessed his boyfriend Darrell overdose on heroin--again. And as his oldest friend, Trevor feels a responsibility to help Darrell in his latest attempt at sobriety, much to the dismay of his own best friends Jake and Andie. But when Darrell starts using again, Trevor is finally ready to call it quits. And just when he does, he meets the ever so charming Ephram. Simply being everything that Darrell is not immediately wins Ephram a number of points. As Trevor's relationship with Ephram quickly progresses, it starts to put a strain on his friendships with Jake and Andie. Jake, the self-proclaimed sex-addict, is starting to worry a little bit about his past catching up with him, namely in the form of HIV. And Andie, who drunkenly ends her sexual dry spell with a one-night stand, realizes that Jake might have less to worry about than she does. Meanwhile, Ephram accepts a job thousands of miles away in New York City, and he wants Trevor to go with him. Now, what started out as Trevor's own personal existential journey turns into a path that will lead everyone to what is most important, themselves.

This was pretty boring movie. You have two of the main characters with major issues going on, but you really do not care that much for them. The way that they act is just off putting. They are over acting so much that the eye rolling from the cast is also being done by the audience.

The best part of the whole movie is that  singer songwriter, Jay Brannan, is in it. He does a song in the movie out of the blue that does not fit the movie's theme at all. It has nothing to do with the movie, but for me he was the highlight of the movie.

This movie was not that great at all. I was not even worth watching once. It was boring as hell, and the movie drug along slowly. This is a movie that I say skip it. I watched it, so you don't have to.
