“Trevor is a film that deals with the very real issue of one’s self worth in the eyes of the people that matter in your life. There’s a little bit of Trevor, and Diana, in all of us”

 

… in 5 words:

An all round beautiful short.

 

… in 25 words:

There is a beautiful balance between the drama and comedy which makes this short enjoyable, digestible and hard-hitting. How have you not already seen it?

 

… in 50 words:

Despite coming out in 1994, Trevor still has a resonance 20 years later. There are still children out there that are forced to conform due to religion and what society thinks they should be. Trevor is refreshing because it is from the perspective of a young boy, not a man.
