The first trailer for Australian pop star Troye Sivan’s new queer comedy-drama movie Three Months has been released.
Earlier this month, Troye excitedly teased his new lead role in the coming-of-age film, coming to streaming soon.
In the film, Sivan plays Caleb, a gay Florida teenager “who loves his camera, his weed, and his grandmother.”
However a day before his high school graduation, just as a new chapter of Caleb’s life begins, the teenager is exposed to HIV during a hookup.
“Florida, 2011. Caleb Kahn gets a text from a hot one night stand that he never thought he’d hear from 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 Aussie viewers on the subscription streaming service on Tuesday, March 1.
Troye Sivan earlier explained the movie was “made against all odds throughout a global pandemic.”
“I care about it a lot. Can’t wait for you to meet Caleb!” he said.
Writer-director Jared Frieder explained Three Months tackles HIV 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 kid coming of age and realizing that the very things that make him different also make him indispensable and worthy of love.
“And perhaps most of all, it’s about what it’s like to wait.”
Troye Sivan’s first movie role since Boy Erased
The new film is Troye Sivan’s first return to acting since his supporting role in the 2018 gay drama Boy Erased.
The devastating conversion therapy drama, based on a true story, starred Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe.
