Dir. Jane Campion. 1989, 97 mins. 35mm courtesy of the Chicago Film Society. With Geneviève Lemon, Karen Colston, Tom Lycos, Jon Darling. New Zealand–born Jane Campion’s debut feature film portrays—with lurid and unabashed vitality—the perilous relationship between two sisters, one repressed and anxious, the other unhindered and reckless, after the latter, nicknamed Sweetie, returns to their Sydney suburban home, throwing family relations and aspirations into disarray. Campion’s distinctive, bold eye is already evident in this tragicomic portrait of two vastly different women, suburban strangeness, and how society considers mental illness. The film won several awards in Australia, and launched the international career of this Oscar-winning filmmaker.
