One of my most favorite movies EVER is Candy.
"A poet falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle -- and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair."
It is such a beautiful story of love and what happens to love when addiction comes into play. It is seriously amazing, my friends. I went through this phase right after Heath Ledger died (wahhhhhhhh!) where I would watch this movie every single day..it drove Tom crazy.
Abby Cornish is stunning in this movie.When I had white blonde hair, I always tried to recreate her frizzy curls/waves..tis hard, folks. Tis hard.
I always find myself gravitating towards movies dealing with drug usage. I'm not quite sure why..but regardless, this movie takes the cake. I highly recommend seeing it! It is very hauntingly realistic, but also beautiful and wonderful. Terrific yet disturbing at times.
Fun fact- I love this movie so much that I got a bird tattoo behind my ear like the above picture. Dan and Candy sport matching birdy tattoos right behind their ears. Nerdy? I think not!
Oh and bring tissues.
