#TIFF19: “THE CLIMB”
Review Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
The Climb is an episodic journey through the lives of best friends Michael (Michael Angelo Covino) and Kyle (Kyle Marvin) after a shocking confession that threatens to ruin their bond.
Co-Writers and Stars Covino and Marvin have magnetic chemistry that carries the Film. Their sharp-wit and awareness of their often slapstick comedy brings an authenticity to their onscreen friendship that would otherwise dissipate. The Film isn’t as tight in the end as it is in the beginning, however, it’s a beautiful examination of the unbreakable bond between best friends.
The Climb screens at TIFF on Thurs, Sep 5 at Ryerson Theatre at 6 PM and Fri, Sep 6 at Scotiabank Theatre at 3:30 PM.
