The Climb by Michael Angelo Covino is his second movie but has been screened at Cannes Movie Festival 2019 in the category Un Certain Regard and in Festival du Cinéma Américain de Deauville where it got the second prize. It has been qualified of a “Claude Sautet type of movie” by l’Obs. A good start!
Kyle and Mike are best friends who share a close bond – until Mike sleeps with Kyle’s fiancée. The Climb is about a tumultuous but enduring relationship between two men across many years of laughter, heartbreak and rage.
It is also the story of real-life best friends who turn their profound connection into a rich, humane and frequently uproarious film about the boundaries (or lack thereof) in all close friendships.
The Climb is an American movie directed by Michael Angelo Covino.
