Greek Movie Fridays: “Straight Story” – Society Turns Upside Down!



Greek Movie Straight Story

Greek Reporter and Odeon S.A. through PameOdeon.gr, present the best Greek movies of recent years! This Friday we suggest you to watch the hilarious and subversive Greek comedy “Straight Story.”

“Straight Story” is a very successful comedy written by Vladimiros Kyriakidis and Efi Mouriki, that turns society… upside down! It presents an imaginary society where being a homosexual is normal while being straight is weird.

John is growing up in a happy family with two dads, who are eager to see him married… to a man! But what happens when their son will announce that he is madly in love with a woman?

The problems begin when John falls in love with Sophia who is in a relationship with Zeta; despite trying to be faithful she finally gives in to her feelings for John.

The parents of the young heterosexual couple suffer because of their children’s “weird” sexual preference, while the screenplay brings the sensitive topic of the discrimination against homosexuals to the forefront, with an original twist. Neighbors avoid contact with the  heterosexual couple, and the homosexual society generally wants to repress the heterosexuals.

At the same time, one of John’s fathers is cheating on his husband with a woman.

This comedy is beyond imagination. The misunderstandings and the twists make it even more hilarious.
