Straight Up

Directed by James Sweeney

Can a most likely gay man and a straight woman fall in love and live happily ever after without that pesky sex thing entering into the equation? That’s the question posed by this super whip-smart comedy from writer-director James Sweeney whose sophisticated comedic debut is taking Hollywood by storm. Sweeney plays Todd, the aforementioned possibly, may be gay man searching for his soulmate…someone who knows THE GILMORE GIRLS and LEGALLY BLONDE as well as he does. Someone who hates cats; has his same biting wit and loquacious (look it up) vocabulary. Tired of the gay dating scene, Todd dives into the heterosexual pool and in a meet-cute that is truly meet-cute, chance encounters with Rory (Katie Findlay, HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER), an aspiring actress who meets Todd’s biting quip with equally biting quip. It’s a match sorta made in heaven in this modern day rom-com with a delicious, edgy center. Sweeney and Findlay are supported by an equally strong supporting cast that includes Trace Thomas (RENT), Randall Park (AQUAMAN), Betsey Brandt (BREAKING BAD), and Brendan Scannell (BONDING).
