Being a painter, when Candy (Abbie Cornish) moves to the countryside with Dan(Heath Ledger, who reclaims his heterosexual screen image in a scene that makes ironic use of "My Own Private Idaho"), Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner's Being a painter, when Candy (Abbie Cornish) moves to the countryside with Dan(Heath Ledger, who reclaims his heterosexual screen image in a scene that makes ironic use of "My Own Private Idaho"), Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner's migration to the boonies spring to mind. But then you realize that Dan doesn't do anything, so the prescient evocation becomes only half-right. Dan is no action painter; action hay bailer, yes. Candy can still be Krasner, but her influential(the bad kind) beau is the anti-muse. Dan has nothing to offer her, except his love. Is it enough? No. Candy may, or may not mature into an artist of great notoriety, but she'll never get a chance to find out if the heroin does her in. "Candy" is a love story about co-dependents(who might be star-crossed; she's middle class, he might be "white trash") that has its intermittent moments of underlining the debacle, which is the grade of diaster that drug addiction entails, with startling power and heartbreak. The sequence that documents Candy's attempt to bring life into this world stands out from the rest of "Candy" in which, like all movies about addicts, are broken into two sets of scenes; they're either stoned, or not stoned.

This film is brilliantly acted and is well supported by a riveting story. As the film goes on you become more attached to the characters, and will most likely be devastated yet filled with emotion at the end.

As the film goes on you become more attached to the characters, and will most likely be devastated yet filled with emotion at the end. As the credits rolled and the music played, I got goosebumps and contemplated how it must feel inside the body of an addict. Expand
