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 film is a wholehearted and hilarious ode to a fraternal bond more profound and enduring than any romantic attachment."
Carlos Aguilar - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"Thrilling and charming in a way that very few comedies ever are."
Nick Allen - ROGEREBERT.COM

"Covino shows truly impressive formal control, incorporating sophisticated camerawork and tightly coiled edits while allowing time, space and rhythm - in short, the foundations of cinema - to play as equal participants in the comedy."
Ben Croll - THEWRAP

"Toxic masculinity is played for rich and revealing farce in writer/director Michael Angelo Covino's assured feature debut, told over multiple years."
Peter Howell - TORONTO STAR
