I enjoyed 'I Can't Think Straight' (which I think is a very clever title indeed given the content of the film). It raises the issue of lesbianism but in the context of Indian culture. Arranged marriages and their parents who wants to marry you off to the most suitable husband. Usually the man who comes from the most prestigious family, who is very successful, tall, very handsome, etc. But what about if the daughter is gay? Much harder to imagine I feel and 'I Can't Think Straight' portrays this matter very well.
The movie is full of alluring cinematography and well constructed dialogue. Particularly I found, when the characters of Lisa Ray and Sheetal Sheth go for their ramble in the park. This is an especially elegant scene but the whole film screams decoration and harmony.
Moving from Jordan to England, the settings created a background to an incredibly unique film not only about coming out but also about religion, family and culture. It was pretty much just a wonderfully unique film, that gave an entirely new perspective on things and that should be applauded over and over again.
The acting from the main characters is spot on and they must have received clear direction from Shamim Sarif. Some of the minor character's acting is quite poor and does not do justice to the script, still overall Ok. But on the whole, it makes little difference to the story.
Rating: 4 / 5
