Heath Ledger plays a poet falls in love with an art student (Abby Cornish), who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle and his love of heroin. Luke Davies adapted his novel with writer-director Neil Armfield.
“Abbie Cornish and Heath Ledger give performances of absolute conviction in this film by Neil Armfield: an inexpressibly painful study of a young couple whose love is consecrated to heroin, and whose hellish breakdown happens, inevitably, in the drug's shadow (…) An excellent, heartfelt film.” – The Guardian
