CANDY (2006)


Herald Sun - Hit - - UP STREAM -

A night­mar­ishly telling take on what it’s like to be young, in love and on heroin. Junkie poet Heath Ledger and promis­ing young artist Ab­bie Cor­nish do the his‘n’hers habit thing, hit­ting an early high be­fore plum­met­ing to a se­ries of shock­ing lows. The con­vinc­ing per­for­mances (par­tic­u­larly Ledger, who looks rav­aged through­out) are the trump card played by an underrated Aus­tralian drama.
