Candy (2006 film)
Candy is a 2006 film about a poet who falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle — and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.
- Directed by Neil Armfield. Written by Neil Armfield, based on the novel Candy: A Novel of Love and Addiction by Luke Davies.

- They say for every ten years you've been a junkie, you'll have spent seven of them waiting. On the one hand it was nice having all that time to think. On the other, anxiety was a full time job.
- Everything we ever did, we did with the best of intentions. But events tumbled and the years piled up. The world is very bewildering to a junkie.
- The world was full of startling new concepts. I couldn't think; I couldn't breathe. I was waiting for her to come back because she was everything. She was everything to me.
- When you can stop, you don't want to. When you want to stop, you can't.

- Candy: I wouldn't care...
