This week was the release of the MTV Entertainment Studios’ feature film, Three Months on Paramount+. Our protagonist Caleb has just found out days before his high school graduation that he has been exposed to HIV. Now he must wait three months to find out if has contracted the virus or not. A result that would no doubt change his life forever. But as we find out in the film, the three-month waiting period on its own is a time where a lot can change or stay the same.
In this film we see how Caleb handles the three months that the doctors need to give him a definite result. A time that he uses for reflection on his way of life. Like how he has handled his grief from losing his father. Or his broken relationship with his mother due to his life choices. Also, we explore his relationships with friends new and old. With all of these moments happening, will it even matter in the end?
