Dan is a poet who falls in love with two kinds of Candy: a woman of the same name and heroin. Dan goes from a smart-aleck to someone trying to find a vein to inject. Candy changes from an actress to a streetwalker and then a madwoman. Starting in Sydney, the two eventually end up in Melbourne to try and go clean, but they fail. This leads them to turn to finding money and heroin, while other posessions and attachments become unimportant.

A subject matter that is very dark, if you can handle it. For me, it was very difficult to watch, save for the stellar performances by Ledger, Cornish, Rush, but I wanted to understand what was involved, as I see substance abuse in my community, sadly, and in plain sight several times a day. I knew I could count on Ledger to help me understand this subject matter better, but kudos to Cornish and Rush as well. This film makes an impression, just be ready for that impression.

Well acted but pointless film about drug use and love.

If you can handle the dark subject matter, this is a spectacular movie. Great performances and a great soundtrack. It'd be great if we could all live on sunlight and chocolate bars.

Good Acting. A true but sad story which shows what is happening today in everyday life to some people.

The film is very heavy and depressing at times, making it difficult to watch.Ledger and Cornish deliver subtle performances that really exhibit the harsh realities of being an addict.

Incredible performances by Ledger and Cornish. Geoffrey Rush exhibits his usual finesse. The story is heavy with a reality that is all to accurate.
