A poet falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle -- and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.
Heath Ledger was the director's only choice for the role of Dan.
We had a lot going for us. We'd found the secret glue that held all things together. In a perfect place, where the noise did not intrude, our world was so very complete.
When Dan is sitting in the shower, the tattoo (which was real and was blacked out for some reason - it is actually a cluster of planets) on his shoulder smudges and transfers to the shower tile. The next scene it is intact.
