"Elliptical and understated — and therefore gets more nightmarish creepiness across than any sequence in Requiem For A Dream." – Troy Patterson, SPIN
Academy Award®-winning actors Heath Ledger* (The Dark Knight) and Geoffrey Rush** (Shine) star with Abbie Cornish (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) in this powerful and harrowing romance.
Dan (Ledger) is a charming but reckless young poet who falls in love with Candy (Cornish), a beautiful young student who is attracted to his bohemian lifestyle. In order to get closer to Dan, Candy follows in his wayward steps of drug addiction. Their passionate relationship then alternates between bursts of ecstatic oblivion and bouts of despair and self-destructive behavior. Hooked as much on heroin as they are on one another, they fall into an intense love triangle — a boy, a girl, and a drug.
