Synopsis:
Diego, a successful Venezuelan fashion photographer, lives a glamorous life of excess with his partner Fabrizio. The shallowness of their day-to-day adventures is put into stark perspective after a sudden tragedy leaves Fabrizio in a coma. To make matters worse, Diego's estranged son, Armando, arrives from Spain for an unexpected visit. Bitter and full of insecurity, Armando has great trouble adjusting to his father's sexuality and the LGBT lifestyle. In the midst of great emotional turmoil, Diego must try to find common ground with his temperamental son and learn that family, friends and love are the real ingredients to a happy, fulfilling life.

Cliched but good - My Straight Son review by TS

Spoiler Alert
23/04/2015

You know the moment this story starts what the formula will be (and no I didn't read the synopsis first!). However it is still good to watch, with some very nice acting and a few twists and turns along the way that does take the film off its formulaic trajectory occasionally.

A reminder - My Straight Son review by TB

Spoiler Alert
10/04/2019

This film serves as a great reminder of how important and precious our relationships are with not just our lovers but also our family and friends.

A storyline that involves and develops from a tragic event (the scene of that event leaves you angry and upset), and which is delivered really well with great acting that shapes and gets across each of the characters and their own personal stories and troubles within the film.

There are a few sub plots running alongside the tragic event that this film is ultimately built around but none are more impressive and emotionally endearing than the relationship between the father and son, which twists and turns throughout while delivering an array of emotions to the viewer.

The film also impressively closes out with a well weighted conclusion to the tragic event and the future lives of the main characters.

An impressive and well delivers film.
