Critic Reviews for I Can't Think Straight
From the wince-inducing title onwards, the script is laughably bad, especially when it attempts seriousnes.
Buildings and their interiors fare a lot better in this sumptuously lensed and set-designed film. That's because they don't have to talk or act.
Plugging the same two actresses into different Sapphic scenarios may be a valid filmmaking strategy but it can be an extremely boring one.
Hw do they tell their boyfriends and parents that they're gay? Conventionally, that's how.
In exploring the eternal conflict between love and duty in a fresh, provocative way, Sarif demonstrates that she is a filmmaker of exceptional promise.
Audience Reviews for I Can't Think Straight
A fascinating movie that centralizes on the companionship and budding romance between two women. Tala and Leyla are first introduced to each other during a visit, and the two instantly connect. They begin spending more time together, and attraction motivates these two when they decide to take a trip together where the two fall in love. Although Tala is engaged, and will soon marry Hani. Leyla is dating Tala's friend Ali, and hopes to become a writer someday. Despite these differences, Leyla admits her love and Tala is indecisive about what path in life to follow. With the help of loved ones, the two find their way to each other. Great cast- Lisa Ray, Sheetal Sheth, Antonia Frering, Dalip Tahil, Nina Wadia, Ernest Ignatius, Amber Rose Revah, Siddiqua Akhtar, and Anya Lahiri. Worthy!
Funny, heartwarming and downright sexy. Yes, technically this would probably not entirely deserve 5 stars (the dialogue seemed a bit forced at times, the low budget shone through very occasionally), but I had so much fun, I loved the chemistry between the actresses and this was more than just a romantic comedy. The humour is clever, the romance believable and the characters are lovable and well-rounded. And, to come to my most valid argument: This is hands down the lesbian romantic comedy with the hottest couple. A brief moment where Nala stands on top of a staircase in heels and looks at Leyla prompted spontaneous gasps from the almost exclusively female audience. You will know which moment I mean... Hot, funny, endearing film.
