Straight Up

Now Streaming – May 7th

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. (95 mins)

“An assured and refreshing first feature from writer/director/star James Sweeney.” – Nell Minow,

“Explores star-crossed lovers from every angle of the Kinsey scale” – The Wrap

“On the surface, Sweeney’s film is a playful examination of sexual fluidity, but underneath the gags, it’s really a universal, sweet movie about the modern complexities of finding a soulmate.” – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
