Straight Up

New York Premiere

Dir. James Sweeney, USA, 2019, 95 mins

Heralding in a fresh voice of contemporary independent cinema, writer/director/producer James Sweeney stars in this witty comedy as Todd, an obsessive-compulsive and GILMORE GIRLS-loving twentysomething plagued by intense anxieties. Todd has never been comfortable with his queerness, or with most aspects of his life, and consistently struggles with insecurity. That is, until he thinks he’s met his soulmate. The only problem? She’s a woman.

Featuring a career-defining performance by Katie Findlay (HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER) as Todd’s literal platonic ideal and comedic support from Betsy Brandt (BREAKING BAD) and Randall Park (FRESH OFF THE BOAT) as Todd’s parents, STRAIGHT UP tells the hilarious, touching, and label-shattering story of gay boy meets straight girl. Beautifully shot, delicately constructed, and brilliantly scripted, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in Sweeney’s hilarious directorial debut.

Writer: James Sweeney
Cast: Katie Findlay, James Sweeney, Randall Park
