This story is a narration from an Australian man who falls in love with two kinds of Candy: a woman of the same name and heroin. The narrator changes from a smart-aleck to someone trying to find a vein to inject, while Candy changes from an actress, call girl, streetwalker, and then a madwoman. Starting in Sydney, the two eventually end up in Melbourne to go clean, but they fail. This leads them to turn to finding money and heroin, while other posessions and attachments become unimportant.
User Reviews: This is a brilliant film featuring an excellent screenplay, outstanding acting and consummate directing.
It is dark but wonderfully romantic. Most importantly, it is truthful. It is an Australian ‘Requiem for a dream’ but with far greater depth.
It may not be traditionally commercial but who would have thought a film about two gay cowboys would be commercial?
I say well done to the Producer and the whole team for their work. I would also say that this has inspired me to look at Australian theatre directors for future features.
PS. Abbie and Heath were seamless. So good to see talent like these two working together and doing so in Australia.
