Now Showing: ‘THE CLIMB’

HamptonsFilm is pleased to continue to curate the hit screening series NOW SHOWING, featuring acclaimed first-run, art house, independent, and world cinema.

This week, we’re pleased to recommend Michael Angelo Covino‘s THE CLIMB (HIFF28), “a clever comic bromance backed by artful filmmaking” (The Hollywood Reporter).


Directed by Michael Angelo Covino
(2019, USA, 97 minutes)

“A wholehearted and hilarious ode to a fraternal bond more profound and enduring than any romantic attachment.” The Los Angeles Times

Best friends Mike (writer-director Michael Angelo Covino) and Kyle (co-writer Kyle Marvin) share a close bond—that is, until a startling confession made on a scenic, mountain bike ride through the South of France threatens to derail their longtime relationship. This revelation launches the pair on an epic, multi-chapter odyssey, as they navigate the ups and downs of their co-dependent, often chaotic, and yet inescapable friendship.

Skillfully told through a series of cleverly constructed “single take” scenes, THE CLIMB hilariously chronicles their complicated and unshakable bond with equal parts absurdity and humanity.
