Based on Timothy Conigrave’s cult-classic and hilarious memoir, and the inspiration for the award winning stage play also by Tommy Murphy, HOLDING THE MAN is the remarkable true-life love story that speaks across generations, sexualities and cultures.
The course of teenage love rarely runs smooth, but this is especially true when you’re secretly gay in an Aussie all-male school in the 1970s and entranced by the captain of the football team.
A pair of star-crossed lovers, Tim and John meet when Tim is in a high-school production of Romeo and Juliet. The encounter ignites a romance that endures for 15 years to laugh in the face of everything life throws at it – the separations, the discriminations, the temptations, the jealousies and the losses.
