Tale of two Australian sisters, Kay and Dawn (Sweetie). Kay, a neurotic, weak-willed introvert, beds (and later lives with) a co-worker whom she believes is the man described to her by a soothsayer. Dawn, meanwhile, is an obese, mentally unbalanced, dominating young woman, who's in love with a drug addict. The dysfunctional, contrasting personalities of the two sisters cause them to wreak emotional havoc upon each other, their parents, and everyone else around them.

Synopsis

Tale of two Australian sisters, Kay and Dawn (Sweetie). Kay, a neurotic, weak-willed introvert, beds (and later lives with) a co-worker whom she believes is the man described to her by a soothsayer. Dawn, meanwhile, is an obese, mentally unbalanced, dominating young woman, who's in love with a drug addict. The dysfunctional, contrasting personalities of the two sisters cause them to wreak emotional havoc upon each other, their parents, and everyone else around them.

Description

This bizarre exploration of human relationships centers on two very different sisters: Kay, Guarded and repressed, and Sweetie, overweight and spontaneous. Their rivalry is utterly passionate, tinged with misunderstood family ties and a dire need for black nail polish.

Notes

Filmed in Sydney, Australia. Campion and Gerard Lee won the 1989 Australian Film Award for Best Original Screenplay for SWEETIE. The film won Best Foreign Feature at the American Independent Spirit Awards in 1990.
