R | | Drama, Romance
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.
Dan's a follower, Candy - not a leader.
