Candy

Sweet, sweet candy.

new Australian movie being release this year: CANDY.

staring; Heath Ledger, Abbie Cornish, Geoffrey Rush, Noni Hazlehurst, Tony Martin

A poet (Ledger) falls in love with an art student (Cornish) who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle -- and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.

could this be Australia' answer to 'Requiem for a dream'?

yeah i know it was full on, but it's addictive and feels both good and bad at the same time, no?

saw candy last night. it was like watching your mother-in-law drive off a cliff in your brand new car....quality acting all round. I flinched every time they wacked themselves. And Geoffrey Rush stole the show of course as the Gay Chemistry Professor Philanthropist to the junkies!!

and with Rodriguez heading the bill, I think it is one of the best fitting sound tracks I've heard in while....
