Candy.

Since subscribing to Showtime again for the L Word a few weeks ago, I've had this movie on my DVR. Something about it's description and the 2 minutes I saw randomly one night stuck out to me. I like movies that are really slow and you get to see the characters developed and fleshed out well. The movie is called "Candy," and was released in 2006. Today I'm finally watching the entire thing.

These are breathtaking performances by Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish. If I can get one person to rent this movie soon and get to experience it, I will be happy. Here's the trailer. Be warned that even though the trailer's pretty middle of the road, the movie is all about heroin addiction and is gritty and full on. This ain't a family movie type thing, is what I'm saying:


("Candy")

Oh my lesbian gods, Arlan! I love this movie! I bought it like 6 months ago. It's amazing. I have, well, had... damn... this I'd-go-straight-for-Heath-Ledger-crush, so I've seen like everything he's ever done. And no one, I mean, NO ONE that I know liked this movie, but I really do love it, and I am glad someone else liked it!
Disclaimed: It's 6am, and I just got home from a party and am very very drunk, so I hope that all made sense!

Damn, I spelled disclaimer disclaimed, otherwise I did pretty good with that comment...
AND let me tell you these word verification things are tricky as fuck!

Saw this film a while back on UK tv, it was brilliant. I really liked Cornish's portrayal in the movie esp how she tries to cope with the loss(won't ruin the plot but if you see it you will know what I mean:)
I will also miss Heath for his performances like the one in this film, great actor who will be sadly missed but not forgotten
See the film, it rocks:)
