Sunday Cinematheque at the Chazen - Chicago Film Society Presents!

Sweetie | Australia | 1989 | 35mm | 97 min. Director: Jane Campion

Event Details

Sunday, October 6, 2019
2 p.m.
Cast: Genevieve Lemon, Karen Colston, Tom Lycos
Writer/director Campion’s first theatrical feature was this offbeat, pitch-black comedy about two sisters in their twenties: reserved, deliberate, and gangly Kay (Colston) and the younger, uninhibited, mentally disturbed, and plump Sweetie (Lemon). Just when Kay is about to get her life in order, Sweetie reenters, throwing everything into turmoil and digging up long-repressed emotional scars.
