Drenched in sex and style, straight plows right through to the tantalizing details of a mnage a trois. Jana is a social worker who tries to help local prostitutes, she tells her judgmental and racist mother that she works for a publishing company as a cover for the truth; she lives in the slums. Nazim prowls the neighborhood with his crew, in search of drugs and fist fights, hiding his true identity as a bi-curious hoodlum who picks up male strangers for an impersonal quickie. David is one of his first conquests, but Nazim is ashamed and throws him out as soon as their session is over. David finds himself back in the arms of his girlfriend, Jana, who is constantly awash in a haze of sex and drugs, including when she performs a strip tease at a bar and picks up a mesmerized Nazim, who knows nothing of her relationship with David. As David, Nazim, and Jana begin to discover each other's secrets, Straight tightens the screws until the tension is almost unbearable.
This highly erotic drama, which is like carnal cross-up of Chasing Amy and Shank is tinged with biting humor. It also features a moody, enveloping mix of songs, courtesy of Kitty Solaris and her future Air Hostess album. Straight isn't just a movie, it's a mind set, where monogamy is nothing more than a pipe dream.
