Straight Up (2019)

Clever camerawork and editing, delicious suburban sets (the house-sitting angle was a nice addition), and a snappy script well-acted make for a nice trifecta of indie goodness to highlight the solid core content of a nuanced look at the complications of love and romance and a moving character study of the troubled and talkative Todd. The vague epilogue works with the former but unfortunately completely undermines the arc of the latter, including the cheesy but touching grand final gesture.
