Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish play junkies in love in the film Candy. Well written, acted and shot, this love story is overshadowed and driven by their heroin addiction. Surprisingly poetic, though the drug is so cruel, the characters are endearing. Cornish plays Candy with an energy surprising to this subject. Desperate and fragile, they follow thier love, but the drug takes it's toll. Another outstanding performance from Ledger.
