Unique and touching
This was a surprisingly poignant short film exploring a rather unique perspective on sexuality. The performances by both Milana Vayntrub and Justin Mark were outstanding. Milana's performance in particular was striking. I had only seen her previously in comedic roles, and the ease with which she handled this somewhat more dramatic scene proved to me once and for all how good an actress she really is. Justin did a wonderful job as well in portraying a confused,conflicted and yet charming character. I highly recommend this short to those who have not yet seen it. I understand that the plan is to take this concept and make it into a feature film called Straight Up. Having loved this as much as I did, I am really rooting for that film to be made.
