This looks beautiful.
I have long heard about this story, 'Holding The Man', which is a memoir and stage play based on a real life relationship, and now… it's going to be a movie, starring Anthony LaPaglia, Ryan Corr, Guy Pearce, Craig Stott, Sarah Snook, Kerry Fox, and Camilla Ah Kin.
Here's the YouTube blurb:
Tim and John fell in love at their all boys high-school while both were teenagers. John was captain of the football team. Tim an aspiring actor playing the lead in Romeo and Juliet. Their romance endured for 15 years to laugh in the face of everything life threw at it – the separations, the discriminations, the temptations, the jealousies and the losses – until the only problem that love can’t solve, tried to destroy them.
Ryan Corr and Craig Stott will star in this remarkable true-life story as Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo, whose enduring love affair has been immortalised in both Tim’s cult-classic and hilarious memoir and Tommy Murphy’s award-winning stage play of the same name. Murphy has adapted Tim’s book for the screen.
