Sweetie Review


Good
Jane Campion's directorial debut features squabbling sisters and general family dysfunction. But the focus is on the girls played by Geneviève Lemon and Karen Colston, only one of whom has progressed (barely) into adulthood. The other, affectionately known as Sweetie, is still a full-on child, and the movie culminates with her sequestering herself in a treehouse, naked except for a thick layer of mud caked over her voluptuous body. Sweetie says something about family dynamics and growing up, but I'm not quite sure what. The script is all over the map, filled with tangents and odd fantasy sequences... and hair-pulling galore.
