Synopsis

STRAIGHT UP

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.

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

Reviews

“A sweet, funny and thoroughly winning romantic comedy that’s a kind of a bi-curious take on When Harry Met Sally for the Millennial crowd or anyone looking for some brainy, banter-rific fun” – Los Angeles Times

“Queer rom-com ‘Straight Up’ is the first great comedy of the year” – New Now Next

“‘Straight Up’ is the work of a startling talent” – Variety

“I haven’t seen a romantic comedy this deliriously funny since Annie Hall – National Review
