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.

"Thrilling and charming in a way that very few comedies ever are."

— Nick Allen,

"Tragedy and slapstick run through the film and it is very funny."

— Cath Clarke, The Guardian

"Covino’s film is an exhilarating anomaly, if not a wake-up call for the visual potential of heartfelt comedy."

— Nick Allen,

"Covino’s brilliant comedy is original and smartly entertaining: a celebration of male friendship in all its ups and downs."

— John Bleasdale, CineVue

"Superbly written and performed by actual friends Kyle Marvin and Michael Angelo Covino, The Climb is a smart, funny, small-scale delight. More please."

— Ian Freer, Empire

"You realise that what you're watching is an epic disguised as scuffed indie comedy, a portrait of adult friendship in which no one ever completely grows up."

— Danny Leigh, Financial Times

"Beautifully written and performed by the director and real-life BFF Kyle Marvin, Covino’s film gets precisely the balance of dependency and denial that keeps a bad bromance afloat."

— Guy Lodge, Variety

"Covino's novice direction is alarmingly assured, mixing together musical diversions, lip-synching dance sequences and audacious tracking camera moves with the ease of an in-form Scorsese."

— Kevin Maher, Times (UK)

"In short, the driving factor of Covino’s relentlessly funny, affecting comedy is neither cinematographic ingenuity, nor its tongue-in-cheek facetiousness, though these elements surely help. No, what’s most persuasive about Kyle and Mike is, simply put, Kyle and Mike themselves."

— Caroline Tsai, The Playlist
