“there’s nothing to be scared of.”
oh man that ending really got me. neil armfield... how dare you. this was such an incredibly raw, intense and heartbreaking film and i am just in absolute awe of how talented heath ledger and abbie cornish are. they really delivered such emotive and authentic performances which, in turn, made me feel empathetic towards their characters. i think it’s one thing to play the role of a heroin addict, but to play it to the point where it’s honest and believable is a very powerful thing and heath & abbie certainly achieved that. also i love the fact that this was an australian romantic drama and how the story was split into three chapters, showing the different stages of dan and candy’s relationship: heaven, earth and hell.
i absolutely adore heath ledger. he can do no wrong in my eyes and i definitely plan on watching the rest of his filmography.
