High Art

3

Hazy sapphic romance

Ex-Brat Packer Ally Sheedy briefly rehabilitated her career with this seductive love story between Sheedy’s junkie photographer and Radha Mitchell’s ambitious art-mag editor.

One part lesbian awakening drama, two parts heroin horror show, High Art shuffles along in a haze that’s as addictive as its featured drug.

Sheedy and Mitchell give bright turns but it’s Patricia Clarkson’s tragic-comic Greta who – literally – delivers the knockout blow.

Bare-bone extras.
