A film by Jane Campion.

"Most movies slide right through our minds without hitting anything. This one screams and shouts every step of the way." – Roger Ebert

The first film from New Zealand-born director Jane Campion (The Power of the Dog) heralded the arrival of a major filmmaking talent. A cornucopia of strangeness, Sweetie keys into a hysterially heightened sense of reality that has not been matched over three decades since its release.

Kay (Karen Colston) and Sweetie (Geneviève Lemon) are sisters, although Kay wishes they weren’t. Kay is shy, superstitious and sexually repressed. Sweetie is loud, slovenly and quite possibly mentally ill. Her arrival, with a junkie boyfriend (Michael Lake), disrupts Kay’s attempts to live a normal life with her new boyfriend Louis (Tom Lycos). Things get worse when Kay’s father Gordon arrives (Jon Darling), after his wife (Dorothy Barry) has left him. The closer they all are to each other, the quicker they start to fall apart.
