Jane Campion's darkly-comedic family drama focuses on the precarious relationship between two twenty-something sisters Kay and Sweetie, and the surreal banality of their everyday life. 

"A feast of colorful photography and captivating, idiosyncratic characters, the tough and tender Sweetie heralded the emergence of this gifted director, as well as a renaissance of Australian cinema, which would take the film world by storm in the nineties." - Criterion Collection 

Nominee: Palme d'Or, Cannes, 1989
