Candy

Directed by Neil Armfield
Australia, 2006
Drama

Synopsis

A poet falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle—and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their intense relationship and sensual world quickly unravels, alternating between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.

Our take

A love story split into three parts—Heaven, Earth and Hell—this riveting Australian relationship drama brings together compatriots and co-stars Abbie Cornish and Heath Ledger, delivering exceptional performances as a pair of doomed free spirits. A moving depiction of addiction and recovery.
