The Climb is a fresh and funny take on the ‘bromance’ genre.
Written by real life friends Covino and Marvin, the story concerns best friends Mike and Kyle who share a close bond – until Mike sleeps with Kyle’s fiance. The film is divided into chapters following the fractured friendship and was shot over a three-year period.
There is true magic in the enduring friendship captured on screen in The Climb as well as accomplished and assured film-making by first time director Covino.
