Straight Up

Straight Up Release Date: April 17, 2020

In the movie 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.

Due to the Wuhan Coronavirus, and all movie theaters in the world being shuttered, the film debuted exclusively in Virtual Cinemas, online.
