Jane Campion, 1989


Jane Campion's stunning debut feature, Sweetie, focuses on the hazardous relationship between the buttoned-down, superstitious Kay and her rampaging, devil-may-care sister, "Sweetie"-and, by extension, their entire family's rotten roots.

A feast of colourful photography and captivating, idiosyncratic characters, the tough and tender Sweetie heralded the emergence of this gifted director as well as the breakthroughof Australian cinema, which would take the international film world by storm in the nineties.
