Based on the much-loved and hugely successful memoir and stage play of the same name, 'Holding The Man' is the warm, funny and extraordinarily moving story of the 15-year love affair between Timothy Conigrave and the boy he fell in love with at high school, John Caleo.

Tim was an aspiring actor. John, the captain of the school football team. Their relationship blossomed and endured in the face of everything life threw at it - pride, adversity, discrimination, temptation and loss - until the only problem that love couldn’t solve tried to destroy them.

'Holding The Man' stars Ryan Corr, Craig Stott, Guy Pearce, Anthony LaPaglia, Sarah Snook, Camilla Ah Kin and Kerry Fox, and is directed by Neil Armfield.
