Director: James Sweeney | Feature | 2019 | USA | English | 95 min.
Living in the world as a queer, sexually active person is hard enough: imagine living that same situation, but with OCD. Straight Up is a heartfelt, down to earth comedy about what it really means in a relationship to have high functioning Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and finding love and companionship, including love for yourself.
This quick witted film, paired with even quicker dialogue, becomes very close to our hearts, digging into the insecurities and anxieties regarding love, loneliness, and relationships. It is clear that Straight Up has quickly exceeded the need for a modern and down to earth romantic comedy filled with banter, back and forth, but at the bottom of it all, love.
