Straight Up

Friday April 17 - Friday May 22

Straight Up

Dir. James Sweeney, USA, 2019, 95 mins

AVAILABLE TO RENT ON DEMAND NOW

Todd is a hyper-articulate, obsessive compulsive gay twentysomething whose fear of dying alone leads him to a baffling conclusion: he might not be gay after all. When he meets Rory, a whip-smart struggling actress with her own set of insecurities, the two forge a relationship that’s all talk and no sex. Writer-Director-Star James Sweeney delivers a razor sharp rom-com that’s equal parts Classical Hollywood and distinctly 21st century, exploring just how elastic our definitions of love and sexuality can get.

“The work of a startling talent” —Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY

Official Selection: NewFest 2019, Frameline 2019, Outfest 2019
