Watch the trailer for Troye Sivan’s drama film Three Months
The first trailer for Australian pop star Troye Sivan’s new queer comedy-drama Three months is out.
Earlier this month, Troye excitedly teased his new starring role in the coming-of-age film, which will soon be streaming.
In the film, Sivan plays Caleb, a gay teenager from Florida “who loves his camera, his weed, and his grandma.”
However, one day before his high school graduation, as a new chapter in Caleb’s life begins, the teenager is exposed to HIV during an affair.
“Florida, 2011. Caleb Kahn gets a text from a hot one night stand that he never thought he’d hear about again,” Troye explained.
“He has just tested positive for HIV.
“Caleb remembers; the condom broke. How long until Caleb finds out if he has it too? Three months.”
While Caleb waits, he finds love “in the most unlikely places.”
In Australia, Paramount+ has confirmed Three months will be available to Australian viewers on the subscription streaming service on Tuesday, March 1.
Troye Sivan explained earlier that the film was “made against all odds during a global pandemic”.
“I care a lot. I can’t wait for you to meet Caleb!” he said.
Writer-director Jared Frieder explained that Three Months tackles HIV-related stigma.
“At its core, it’s a film about dismantling the shame around HIV and showing that it’s no longer a death sentence in our modern world with access to healthcare,” he said.
“It’s about a child coming of age and realizing that the very things that make him different also make him indispensable and worthy of love.
“And perhaps more than anything, it’s about what it’s like to wait.”
Troye Sivan’s first film role since Boy Erased
The new film is Troye Sivan’s first acting comeback since his supporting role in the 2018 gay drama erased boy.
The devastating conversion therapy drama, based on a true story, starred Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe.
