Rent Sweetie on DVD


1989 Rated R 1hr 39m

Director Jane Campion's 1989 debut feature plumbs the dysfunctional depths of one Australian family. Emotionally distant Kay (Karen Colston) is thrown off by the sudden arrival of her sister, Dawn (Genevieve Lemon), fresh out of the insane asylum. The two sisters, who are complete opposites, quarrel endlessly -- and to make matters worse, their father arrives with the dire news that their mom has left him to go "find herself" in the outback.
