Description

A landmark in independent and gay filmmaking, Lisa Cholodenko's High Art is a superbly constructed erotic drama which charts the tempestuous romantic entanglements between three women. Forty-year-old photographer, Lucy (Ally Sheedy, in an award-winning performance) and her German girlfriend Greta (Patricia Clarkson, revelatory in a heartbreaking role) are embroiled in a drug-fuelled affair. When Lucy's upstairs neighbor, the seemingly innocent 24-year-old blonde Syd (Radha Mitchell) enters into their lives, their world changes forever. High Art paints a startlingly real picture of the nature of an all-consuming bond between women, and the effect the haze of drugs and scourge of infidelity can have on that connection. A cinematic triumph that transcends any simple 'lesbian' tag.
