90 mins Drama/Coming of Age/Comedy

Candy injects the “fun” into her dysfunctional life. When your brother is found by a neighbour naked and drunk, you’re stuck with a caveman of a boyfriend, you have a dickhead boss, and the madness of everyday life competes with your mother’s need to appear “normal,” you have to peek between the cracks to find the warm rays of hope. But, maybe normalcy is just a construct for other people. And, maybe breaking out of the institution is more important than fitting in. After years of trying to save those she loves, it's time for Candy to save herself.

Alicia Slimmer's film is a vibrant and colourful tale that will have you cheering along. It is an American Indie film through and through but it carries a huge heart and a taste for the Hollywood fantastical.

Go see if you liked SIXTEEN CANDLES and or THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS.
