Explores star-crossed lovers from every angle of the Kinsey scale.

NO LONGER PLAYING

Straight Up

Todd is a hyper-articulate, obsessive compulsive gay twenty-something 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.

"Straight Up" is an assured and refreshing first feature from writer/director/star James Sweeney. With the rhythms and conventions of a traditional romantic comedy, it is refreshingly unconventional in form and content, boasting a sharp script and a gift for cinematic storytelling.
