Sweetie

Genre: Drama; Starring: Genevieve Lemon, Karen Colston, Tom Lycos; Director: Jane Campion; Author: Jane Campion; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 97; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Avenue Pictures Productions

Jane Campion’s first feature, Sweetie, about two competitively dysfunctional out-of-the-nest sisters, weaves oddball charm, art school inscrutability, and Sally Bongers’ painterly cinematography into a sui generis tapestry.

EXTRAS
In a making-of, Lemon says Campion encouraged her to throw on-set tantrums to ”galvanize everything.” The commentary betrays a friendly but piquant tension between Campion and co-writer/erstwhile lover Gerard Lee, who, to this day, seems bedeviled by her (and Bongers’) ”If it’s interesting it’s working” attitude.
