Movie Reviews

An insightful and witty short film.
Jessel Monteverde (monteverde@netze | Studio City, CA | 10/14/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I saw Trevor in a film class at UCLA and it had everyone laughing hard. I loved the humorous approach it had to the taboo subject of homosexuality. To me, it was reminiscent of All in the Family's comedic presentation of difficult topics such as racism. Although the film was great, I still cannot give it 5 stars simply because I believe only a handful of films ever created deserve such reverence. It was entertaining and touching, nonetheless. And definitely worth viewing time and again. Enjoy."

"This was truly a sweet movie. I wish that I would have had access to this movie when I was 13 and feeling that I was the only gay kid in the world. I highly recommend this movie to anyone, especially if you have kids that are struggling with these issues."

"This is a charming and sensitive film that teaches acceptance andempathy. It's a real shame that the reviewer below called it"disgusting" and "gross". I assume it is the gay content that makes that reviewer so "disgusted". . . I merely want to give this charming film the credit it is due, and to stop the insults that the other reviewer has thrown indiscriminately out."
A touching, humorous tale of self-discovery

"TREVOR tells the story of a fourteen-year-old gay boy's voyage of self-acceptance. The film's humor owes a great deal to HAROLD AND MAUDE: several of the film's funniest scenes are paraphrases of Harold's staged death scenes in the earlier film. The humor aside, this is a very tender and humane film. Trevor (wonderfully played by Barsky) is a sensitive young man who is being raised by parents who might just as well be perfect strangers - a state common among gay kids. That Trevor is gay seems obvious to everyone but Mom and Dad - the kid adores Diana Ross and Broadway show tunes, for gosh sakes! Trevor has to endure the rejection of the object of his first crush as well as the rest of his schoolmates. But Trevor is nothing if not resilient and it is his strength of character that gives the film it's spirit."
