The Queen’s Film Society, along with some new cosponsors—the Brazos Valley’s Pride Community Center, Texas A&M’s Film Studies Program, and the LGBTQ Professional Network at Texas A&M—present our next Virtual Cinema offering and community chat.
STRAIGHT UP (James Sweeney, dir., USA, 95 mins, unrated) Todd is a hyper-articulate, obsessive compulsive gay twentysomething 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.
