Movie Info

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.

  • Sweeney and Findlay, who's a real find, are head-spinningly good here, juggling their torrents of dialogue with aplomb.

    March 5, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An assured and refreshing first feature from writer/director/star James Sweeney.

    February 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Sweeney updates that grand and glorious mode of run-for-cover screwball to the age of pop-culture-saturated digital millennials who think faster than they can process. And he does it with a flair that would leave Ben Hecht smiling.

    February 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The movie comes across as a rush of bouncy one-liners and arch formal conceits. You never quite buy Todd and Rory as flesh-and-blood people who could have conversations that don't sound rehearsed.

    February 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • We often make our own psychological prisons, and Straight Up is a droll embodiment of its protagonist's (and perhaps its maker's?) inner turmoil.

    July 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's the battle between what they feel for each other and what they believe their relationship should amount to that gives Straight Up its most memorable qualities.
